Episode 108 - The Corporate Parents, Court Rulings, Refused Adopters and Banter
Play • 1 hr 2 min

In this episode we wrap up our conference feedback, and get drawn into what has been a busy old news week. 

The outgoing Children's Commissioner has made some pretty honest remarks that lead us into fostering recruitment. From there we consider the ongoing government spending review, the Article 39 ruling on the Covid amendments to social care legislation and then wrap up some thought on the lazy newspaper trope of poor couples being not allowed to adopt. We comment of the lack of news on the ASF and fostering as a career. 

Scott reflects on the passion of Jan Slater, friend, colleague and adoption practitioner, and we try to ask some difficult questions of ourselves in relation to our lack of understanding of some people's perspectives. 

Here's links to the news articles we chatted about.

Evaluating Risk Factors in Foster Care
We talk about evaluating the risk factors for foster care with Dr. Kimara Gustafson, an Assistant Professor in the Department of Pediatrics at the University of Minnesota with appointments at both their Adoption Medicine Clinic and Pediatric Emergency Department. *In this episode, we cover:* * The common risk factor that foster parents and those wanting to adopt from foster care need to be aware of include physical, emotional, developmental, educational, and behavioral problems rooted in childhood adversity and trauma. * What types of trauma are foster kids exposed to? Neglect, abuse, prenatal exposure, multiple caregivers, not having a reliable caregiver, constant stress  * What percentage of children in foster care have been exposed to drugs or alcohol prenatally?  * Impact of trauma on physical health.  *  Foster parents often have little information about prior health history.  * Overmedication of foster children and youth.  * Research has found that the average number of psychiatric diagnoses and psychotropic medications prescribed were significantly greater for youth and children in foster care. o Children in foster care are likely to be kept on them longer than other Medicaid-enrolled children who are not in foster care.  * What are psychotropic drugs and why are so many foster children on them?  * Who has authority to make health care decisions for foster children and youth?  * Impact of trauma on mental health.  * hyperactivity, inattention, and impulsivity.  *  What types of behaviors are common as a result of trauma?  * Sleep issues common to children in foster care.  * Food issues common to children in foster care.

TURNOUT Episode 10: ‘If we raise our expectations we would have a better system’
This series began in the past, to better understand the origin and history of our ongoing fight for voting rights. And as Turnout comes to a close, we consider its future. Where do we go from here? What lessons can we take with us, and what impact might this election have on our ongoing push for a more inclusive democracy and a more perfect union. In this last episode of Turnout with Katie Couric, we hear from some of our previous guests — including Wendy Weiser, Gilda Daniels, and Tyler Okeke — about the biggest takeaways from the 2020 election and their impact on our democracy. But first, an interview with someone whose job it is to lay a civics foundation for the next generation of voters. Greg Cruey is a middle school social studies teacher in War, West Virginia — a one-time coal mining center that is now one of the poorest areas in the country. Because Mr. Cruey explains our voting system, our elections, and our democracy to his 6th, 7th, and 8th graders each year, we wanted to hear how he might put our 2020 experience into context. Read more about the people and organizations mentioned in this episode: What it’s like to teach children about the election, and its results, in deep-red Trump country, by Hanna Natanson (Washington Post) Wendy Weiser is the Vice President for Democracy at the Brennan Center for Justice at New York University Law School Gilda Daniels is an associate professor at the University of Baltimore School of Law, as well as litigation director at Advancement Project national office and author of ‘Uncounted: The Crisis of Voter Suppression in America.’ Tyler Okeke is a Vote at 16 Youth Organizer with Power California and a second-year student at the University of Chicago.
