Mandel School’s Nancy Rolock presents at conference in England

Nancy Rolock, the Henry L. Zucker Professor in Social Work Practice at the Jack, Joseph and Morton Mandel School of Applied Social Sciences, was part of a group of presenters at the European Scientific Association On Residential And Family Care For Children And Adolescents at the University of Sussex in Brighton, England earlier this month.

The focus of the discussion, titled “From Denial to Disproportionality to the Abolitionist Movement in the U.S. Child Welfare System,” focused on the racist origins of the United States child welfare system, how those origins influenced policy developments, and critique the most recent trend to abolish the U.S. child welfare system.
