Welcome to the University of Baltimore Center for Families, Children and the Courts blog! We are excited to introduce this forum for the exchange of ideas, discussion, and news about CFCC.

Check back often for up-to-date information regarding CFCC’s activities, including Unified Family Courts (UFCs), the Truancy Court Program , the Urban Child Symposium and other conferences and symposia.

We also plan to use this blog to foster discussion related to CFCC’s mission and projects, including the application of therapeutic jurisprudence and the the ecology of human development to improve outcomes for families and children in court.  We hope to engage and interact with our readers.  Together, we can create a deeper understanding of systemic influences on the lives of families and children and can bring about meaningful change in communities, families, and the family justice system.
