The Phyllis and Harvey Sandler School of Social Work’s Child Welfare Institute continues to find meaningful ways for professors and students to engage with the community through practice-informed research. In the Spring of 2017, The Community Alliance of Palm Beach County partnered with professor Heather Thompson and four MSW students/graduates - Shanekia Calbert, Jacquesta Paul, Verena Wylie, and Matt Panetta. They provided the Community Alliance with a literature review on addressing the needs of children and families in the child welfare system through provision of supervised visitation programs. Prof. Joy McClellan presented the findings at September’s Community Alliance Open Meeting.
