Child welfare has a strong crossover with the disability field, yet there has been little critical examination of child welfare services through a disability lens and no substantial examination of how its policies and programs affect people with disabilities and their family members. In this episode, Dr. Elizabeth Lightfoot discusses her research on the impact of child welfare policies on parents with disabilities.

By Caroline :

This podcast is particularly interesting for anyone interested in either or both child welfare and disabilities. Sounds like the researcher, Dr. Lightfoot is doing really wonderful, needed work. Also helpful in reminding listeners that collaboration and inter-agency cooperation seems key in the health and effectiveness of social service delivery to clients. Really enjoyed the interview!
