Do We Do Too Little About Child Abuse or Too Much?

When: Thursday, January 25 2018 @ 05:30 PM - - 07:00PM
Where: Stanford Law School, Room 190
559 Nathan Abbott Way
Stanford, CA 94305
Description: Each year child protective services removes thousands of children from their parents and places them in foster care. It does this to prevent abuse or neglect, but the experience is traumatic for children and parents alike. How do caseworkers and judges make the momentous decision, whether or not to remove a child, and how could the system be changed for the better?
