A conversation about child abuse

    Listen

    Hour 1
    Ten year old Charleeni Ferreira died last week in Philadelphia from injuries related to physical abuse. Her family was the subject of several abuse investigations and she was seen by health care providers over the course of several years. We talk about this case and the challenges facing the child welfare system and the people who work in it. Guests include University of Pennsylvania’s Richard Gelles, Margie Gualtieri of the Support Center for Child Advocates and Jackie Block Goldstein from the Philadelphia Children’s Alliance.
