June is National Reunification Month and to mark the end of the 2020 occasion, speakers will highlight the effectiveness of multidisciplinary legal teams that include lawyers, social work professionals, and advocates who have lived experiences navigating the child welfare system. They will explain the Children’s Bureau recent decision to invest federal IVE dollars in the multidisciplinary legal representation model for parents and children, share details of the 2019 study on this model and discuss how this model benefits child welfare agencies and most importantly, children and their parents.
