Inside Voice on Adoption

Hello! This year, I was enrolled in an English course called Missing Voices in which we explored both past and contemporary issues through the perspective of underrepresented populations in the media and in literature. For the final project, each student is exploring a missing voice and creating a product that will project this voice and help people understand more aspects of the society they live in. I have conducted interviews with both adopted children and their adoptive parents addressing…See More

Behind the Scenes

What is an Educational Reconciliation Specialist? What does he or she do? An Educational Reconciliation Specialist is a person that works behind the scenes of the reunification process to reconcile families. In reality, most judges dislike removing children from their birth family and disconnecting the child from those they naturally have an attachment to. To foster and strengthen this bond judges like to refer families to an intensive therapeutic day program that will monitor the family and give those actively involved a 360 degree image of how well the family does at meeting their goals.

Measuring the Outcomes

Recently, the lack of effectiveness of federally-funded programs has been a topic in the news. We know that same yardstick - dollars per unit of effectiveness- is also important at non-profits. Continued funding for programs is contingent on evidence based-outcomes provided through data. Also, our staff needs to know what about our programs is working. Areas of professional practice, such as medicine, psychology, and also social work have had periods in the past where methods and practice were based on the anecdotal experiences of others and were not rooted in valid scientific evidence.
