Following up on our April 22, 2021 discussion with Kenneth Rosen, author of Troubled – The Failed Promise of America’s Behavioral Treatment Programs, we will talk with parents’ attorney Micki Moran, and clinical psychologist, Dr. Ruth Kraus, about their perspectives on residential placements for students as well as alternative options to support students with significant social-emotional, behavioral, and mental health concerns. How can schools and families intervene sooner? When, if ever, is residential treatment warranted or helpful? What community-based supports are most effective? Please send us your questions and join us for a close look at this difficult issue.
