Webinar: Child Welfare and Pandemics - What We Know and What We Can Do


As child protection researchers and practitioners worldwide work to understand and manage the unprecedented effects of COVID-19 on systems of care, join this presentation by Barbara Fallon of the University of Toronto and Delphine Collin-Vezina of McGill University. 

Dr. Fallon and Dr. Collin-Vezina will share information from the new University of Toronto Policy Bench report, Child Welfare and Pandemics Literature Scan (Sistovaris et al., 2020), including current knowledge of child welfare and pandemics, the impact on children in the Canadian child welfare system, potential policy solutions that could mitigate the detrimental effects of pandemics, and the measures taken to control the spread of disease. They will then open up the discussion for audience questions and comments. Note: The webinar will be recorded and made available afterward on the ISPCAN website.
