Starting November 9, 2018 and ending on November 30, 2018 Cato Unbound I was the lead author in a symposium on child protectives services that published three articles I wrote in a dialogue starting with “When Child Protective Services Gets it Wrong.” The series touches many topics of great concern to me: safety plan separations creating a shadow foster care system, registers, investigations, child removal standards, overprotection/overreporting and the overall goal of the system. The discussion is much richer than I expected!
