In the March 31 edition of the Daily Record, columnist Joe Surkiewicz interviewed University of Baltimore School of Law Associate Professor Barbara Babb, on her Center for Families, Children and the Courts' upcoming "Urban Child Symposium."

The April 4 conference, entitled "A Holistic Approach to the Urban Child’s Trauma: From the Eyes of the Beholder," "has hit a nerve," Babb, director of the center, said.

"People want to talk about the issues faced by urban children," Babb told Surkiewicz. "Previous conferences have focused on school dropouts, health, juvenile justice and child welfare. In this symposium, the focus is trauma. We're attending to an urgent need to learn and talk about those issues."
