Event description

Supporting children involved with child protection services and youth justice

Tuesday 30 July 1:00-2:15pm AEST, online via MS Teams

Hosted by Family and Community Services Insights, Analysis and Research (FACSIAR) 


The trajectory of ‘crossover’ or ‘dual system’ children in the child protection and youth justice systems presents a significant and longstanding concern for both policy-makers and practitioners. Crossover children comprise up to 10% of child protection-involved children, and around 50% of justice-involved children in Australia.

In this webinar, Associate Professor Susan Baidawi, Associate Professor in the Department of Social Work at Monash University and co-director of the Monash Criminal Justice Research Consortium, will draw on a series of research studies to outline what is known about the characteristics of this group of children and their pathways to justice system involvement. She will also discuss opportunities for practice and systemic change to prevent and address these pathways. A panel of experts from relevant DCJ policy areas will also discuss what these findings mean for policy and practice.

This webinar will be chaired by Jessica Stewart (Executive Director, FACSIAR)
