FXB: What do you see as the biggest overall challenges in Child Protection these days?
Janella Kang: Awareness of the issue and acceptance that change is needed
FXB: How do you think academic and scholarly work can inform child protection approaches? Have you seen any good examples of this in the real world?
Janella Kang: I believe these works can help bring light to the issue and hopefully motivate for more people to cause a social and systemic change. I really found Dr. Nadine Burke Harris’s book and TedTalk about child adversity very informative. https://www.ted.com/speakers/nadine_burke_harris_1
