Black children are overrepresented in the child welfare system. The reason for the child welfare crisis is complex and intersects with the education, health, and criminal justice systems from mandatory reporting to exits from care. Can communities and systems address the crisis by engaging in an equity-and-trauma informed approach? What if achieving equity means encouraging mandatory supporting instead of mandatory reporting?
This presentation will explore racial inequities in the child welfare system and provide guidance on addressing the crisis through an equity-and-trauma informed approach. The presentation will engage participants in a discussion about mandatory supporting.
The presenter, Ms. Tanya Rollins received her BS in Psychology from Texas A&M University in 1990 and her MSW from Texas State University-San Marcos in 2007. Ms. Rollins is employed in the fields of child welfare and higher education. She retired after thirty years in the Texas child welfare system.
