Using Adolescent Developmental Science to Transform the Child Welfare and Juvenile Justice Systems
January 21 @ 1:00 am - 2:00 am PST
In 2019, the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine issued a ground-breaking report, The Promise of Adolescence: Realizing Opportunity for All Youth. In this presentation, Susan Vivian Mangold, an author on this report, will present her findings and describe how adolescent developmental science can be applied to child-serving systems, including the child welfare and juvenile justice systems. Through the findings of the report, Ms. Mangold will discuss many of the leading issues for youth, families and advocates working to transform the child welfare and juvenile justice systems.
