Friday, April 28: Session H5 – Equitable Solutions to Keep Children Safe in Their Homes and Support Families 

This workshop will share equitable solutions to better support families identified through Child Safety Forward, a four-year, federal demonstration initiative to develop multidisciplinary strategies and responses to address serious or near-death injuries as a result of child abuse or neglect and to reduce the number of child fatalities. The initiative is funded by the Department of Justice, Office for Victims of Crime, and Social Current serves as the national technical assistance provider to sites in California, Connecticut, Illinois, Indiana, and Michigan. This public health approach re-balances power, credits multiple types of data, and centers learning. Our objectives in this presentation are to share new approaches to addressing serious injuries and fatalities from maltreatment and to introduce new strategies for reframing childhood adversity as a public, preventable, and solvable issue.

Amy and Romero will be presenting alongside Patrick Nickoletti, University of Saint Joseph, Hartford, CT
