  1. Using Social Media Data from Reddit to Examine the Concerns of Foster Families

    October 28, 2020 - 12:00pm to 1:00pm

    This webinar will present research on how foster families, including parents and children, are faring during COVID-19. Given the challenges involving child welfare workers accessing foster families during the pandemic, the current research relied on social media data from Reddit to better understand the most pressing concerns of foster families discuss on online forums during COVID-19. The research will shed light on areas child welfare workers, programs, and policies can intervene to ally some of the challenges foster families experience during this time.

    This beginner level webinar is approved for one synchronous online continuing education contact hour.
