Upcoming Events

Health Policy and Child Welfare

Dr. Gregg Margolis will join Dr. Catherine Cerulli to discuss health policy and how it relates to child welfare. Dr. Margolis will begin the webinar with an overview of the federal health policy landscape providing insight to the governmental components and influences inside and outside the government. He will share diagrams that organizations can utilize after the webinar to craft their educational materials and circulate them to the right individuals. Dr. Cerulli will discuss how the federal policy landscape impacts child welfare and how many of the statutes passed impact families for decades. She will also share some tools created by a cohort of Robert Wood Johnson Health Policy Scholars (2020-21), with help from the TRANSFORM team, to help organizations share the federal policy landscape with the constituents they serve to help educate citizens on policy and how it influences their lives. She will also share a Bill of Responsibilities which can help us understand our collective responsibilities to promote equitable opportunities for health and well-being.

Current laws and policies regarding the care and treatment of children separated from their parents often land these families in the legal system as they struggle with alternative parenting plans, the termination of parental rights, and immigration issues. The science regarding attachment spotlights the lasting influence of these children’s experiences. In this program, Drs. Jody Todd Manly, Mt. Hope Family Center’s Clinical Director, and Catherine Cerulli, an attorney and current Professor of Psychiatry and Director of the University of Rochester’s Susan B. Anthony Center and the Laboratory of Interpersonal Violence and Victimization, will share and translate evidence-based information regarding the consequences of parent-child separation into practical tools for lawyers. They will also share interviewing techniques and basic principles of trauma-informed lawyering skills needed when dealing with children and parents who have experienced separation.
