  2. Fines and Fees: Punishing the Poor & Increasing Disparity

    October 20, 2022 - 12:00pm to 1:30pm

    This discussion is co-sponsored by the University of Michigan Ford School of Public Policy's Poverty Solutions.

    From the cash bail system, to fines and fees while incarcerated, to the cost of reentering society, our society functions on a punitive system of fines and fees that often catapults those already experiencing hardship into a spiraling cycle of debt and repayments - never fully able to catch up. Join us as we explore the inequity surrounding fines and fees in our criminal justice system and its role in increasing race-based disparities. Featured panelists include Washtenaw County Prosecutors Eli Savit and Victoria Burton-Harris; and Dr. Meghan O’ Neil, Research Scholar at the Population Studies Center, Institute for Social Research. This panel will be facilitated by MSW Student and Co-founder of Michigan Liberation, Nicholas Buckingham.

  5. Evidence-based Parenting Interventions to Help Parents Reduce the Use of Physical Punishment

    October 21, 2022 - 1:00pm to 4:00pm

    This course focuses on an issue that many social workers confront in their practice with children and families - the use of discipline and physical punishment in childrearing. This course examines research on the effectiveness of a wide range of parental disciplinary approaches. This course introduces a series of evidence-based parenting interventions, and discusses how these interventions approach parents' beliefs and behaviors related to child discipline. We will discuss how cultural norms and beliefs may influence parents' discipline choices, and how social workers can engage in productive dialogue with parents to help parents achieve their parenting aims. Content of this course is based on the book published by the instructor titled "Ending the physical punishment of children: A guide for clinicians and practitioners."
