New Book Honoring Child Welfare Professionals

The Impossible Imperative features the lived experiences of seasoned child welfare staff – stories written by Title IV-E student alumni – on the front lines.

As you well know, child welfare is an extremely challenging profession, but the stories from the field infrequently highlight the voices of child welfare professionals whose efforts touch the lives of vulnerable children and families.

The book offers a fresh perspective on the intellectually and morally complicated decisions that child welfare workers face on a regular basis and it highlights the competing principles that animate this field.
