Subject:Call for Abstracts - Immigration, Child Welfare, and Criminal Justice Systems

Dear Colleagues, Please see the below Call for Abstracts for an upcoming issue of Protecting Children focusing on the Intersection of Immigration, Child Welfare, and Criminal Justice Systems. As part of its continued commitment to the safety, permanency, and well-being of vulnerable children, American Humane Association will publish an issue of Protecting Children, a peer-reviewed journal, dedicated to advancing knowledge about immigrant children and families involved in both the child welfare and justice systems (juvenile or adult criminal justice systems, and federal immigration systems). Over the past several years, there have been notable increases in cases involving incarcerated parents who are referred to immigration detention after serving their criminal sentences. Increases in immigration enforcement activities have led to increases in children becoming involved in child welfare systems following the arrest or detention of their foreign-born parents. Additional interactions with justice systems have led to increasing complexities for immigrant families and child welfare systems. This issue of Protecting Children will publish articles outlining policy issues, practices, and outcome data that are uniquely relevant to immigrant children and families with joint child welfare and justice system involvement. Abstracts are due by December 15th, 2011. The full call is available at AHA's website: http://americanhumane.org/children/professional-resources/protecting-children-journal/ Alan Dettlaff, PhD, MSW University of Illinois at Chicago Jane Addams College of Social Work 1040 W. Harrison (MC 309) Chicago IL 60607 phone: 312-996-0044 email: aland@uic.edu
