This journal club discussion will focus on the New Yorker article, “When Should a Child Be Taken from His Parents.” This is a fantastic piece focusing on the role of adversity and trauma in the lives of children and families, and the complex considerations that inform when children are able to stay with their biological families or enter the foster care system. It is relevant to students and professionals working in policy, public health, clinical health services, and other sectors.
Dr. Nancy Fajman is a pediatrician who works at the Child Protection Program at Hughes Spalding. She specializes in child abuse, and we are excited to have her lead this event!
We encourage you to read the article in advance of our discussion. There will be food served; please RSVP so we get the right amount.
