Conference 'Lives Lived in Foster Care: Variation in the Experience of Children Placed Away from Families' (Dr. Fred Wulczyn)

Wanneer:di 19-07-2016 15:30 - 17:00
Waar:Room 0074 (Noordamzaal) of the Munting Building

with: Dr. Fred Wulczyn, Chapin Hall, University of Chicago

Dr. Wulczyn is the 2011 recipient of the James E. Flynn Prize for Research. In 2014, he was elected to the
American Academy of Social Work and Social Welfare. He is lead author of Beyond Common Sense: Child Welfare, Child Well-Being, and the Evidence for Policy Reform (Aldine, 2005) and co-editor of Child Protection: Using
Research to Improve Policy and Practice (Brookings, 2007).

Dr. Wulczyn is director of the Center for State Foster Care and Adoption Data. The databases he has developed give state administrators capacity to analyze key child welfare outcomes, compare outcomes across agencies and
jurisdictions, project future service patterns, test the impact of policy and service innovations, and monitor
progress. Dr. Wulczyn developed the nation's first proposal to change the federal law limiting the ability of states to design innovative child welfare programs, which then led to the development of the Title IV-E waiver programs used by states to undertake system reform in child welfare programs. He continues to lead the field in developing alternative approaches to financing child welfare programs.

Organized by: Mónica López López, Helen Bouma and Hans Grietens
