Event description

Description

Topic: Looking Through the Eyes of the Vulnerable

Description: Using the presenter's 38 years in child welfare as the foundation, the workshop will examine the lives of children involved with the foster care system. The presentation will explore the lessons learned from the children's experience with abuse and neglect, their time in foster care, and their experience with adoption. Using case examples, the presenter will review the lessons learned over a career through the eyes of specific children, looking at the emotional impact of policies, practices, and good intentions of the adults who surround them and discussing ways to better serve children like them.

Speaker Bio: Danny Stevens is the Coordinator of the Athens-Clarke County Family Treatment Court and part-time instructor with the University of Georgia. He retired from DFCS in 2013 as program manager in the State Permanency (Adoption) Unit. His primarily role with the Department was in the adoption and foster care areas. His graduate research focused on infertility, adoption and marital satisfaction.
