Understanding and Responding to Racial Disparities in Child Welfare Services (Roundtable 4)
Understanding and Responding to Racial Disparities in
Child Welfare Services
Racial disparities are an issue of great national concern. This roundtable first presents and discusses the current research on racial disparities in child welfare and the social psychology of bias, focusing specific attention on the implication for application in policy and practice. Secondly, presenters from state and county child welfare agencies describe three different models of addressing the problem of racial disparities through policy and practice. These models illustrate how research findings can be applied to policy and practice and also show how various organizations in different contexts can craft solutions that are appropriate for their environment and population.
