Preserving Families Through Primary Prevention

via Zoom

Removing a child from the family and placing them in foster care is a traumatizing experience that can result in lifelong negative impacts for both children and parents.

Primary prevention efforts in the community can address issues long before there is system involvement.

How do these programs work, and how can lawyers help? Hear from Prof. Matthew Fraidin, of the University of the District of Columbia David A. Clarke School of Law; Nena Villamar, chief of the Parental Defense Division at the Maryland Office of the Public Defender; and Christopher Church, senior director for strategic consulting at Casey Family Programs.

Baltimore Law Prof. Shanta Trivedi, faculty director of the Sayra and Neil Meyerhoff Center for Families, Children and the Courts, will moderate the discussion.
