Additional Details about the Conference:

Dr. Fitch will address concerns and hesitations of the field of child welfare to use technology and social media and discuss opportunities to embrace these tools to the benefit of youth and families.

Following the keynote presentation, a panel of current and former foster youth, who are members of a local Foster Club chapter, will discuss their thoughts and experiences with technology and social media use as youth in out of home placement.

Finally, we have invited Frances Allegra and Pat Smith from Our Kids of Miami-Dade/Monroe, Inc. to discuss the fascinating ways their organization is helping to transform child welfare practice in Florida by harnessing the power of technology.
