Juvenile and Family Court Journal Publishes Special Rethinking Foster Care Issue

March 16, 2017


The Juvenile and Family Court Journal published a special issue focused on improving child welfare systems across the U.S.  The “Rethinking Foster Care” issue is the result of collaboration between the Juvenile and Family Court Journal and the University of Michigan Law School, who hosted a Rethinking Foster Care symposium in May 2016. This symposium brought together national experts, researchers, practitioners, and advocates to reimagine child welfare systems from the ground up.  Each article in this issue is based on a presentation and resulting discussions from the symposium. This issue is currently available for free through Wiley Online Library.

The peer-reviewed Juvenile and Family Court Journal, published by the National Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges (NCJFCJ), focuses on issues of interest to the field of juvenile and family justice, including child abuse and neglect, juvenile justice, domestic violence, substance abuse, child custody and visitation, judicial leadership, and related topics. The Journal is a member benefit to NCJFCJ members and is also available through subscription; however, the first issue of each year is available free to the public.
