My Forensic Social Work course has gone live at OU! A long time in the making!
I was fortunate to be one of the many people interviewed by Olga Khazan for her piece Into the Body of Another. This work begins to tell the story of the complicated intersection of poverty, drug abuse, child welfare, and the criminal justice system for women and their children in Oklahoma. More specifically, issues surrounding fetal exposure to drugs and alcohol are discussed. Some pieces are cut and dried while others are much more nuanced. It’s an interesting read, at least to me, and so I thought perhaps others may like it too. Click below to check it out. ~damc
