The new book by Dr. Monique B. Mitchell, Research Assistant Professor at the Center for Child & Family Studies, will be hitting shelves in May. The Neglected Transition: Building a Relational Home for Children Entering Foster Care explores children’s experiences of loss and ambiguity as they transition into foster care, as well as the questions children ask during this critical life transition. Dr. Mitchell uses child-centered research, practical examples, and healing suggestions to create a foundation from which to build a relational home. Drawing from the compelling stories of children, she invites readers to join children on their journey as they transition into the foster care system and courageously share their experiences of loss, ambiguity, fear, and hope. Dr. Mitchell is passionate about enhancing the lives of children in foster care. Her research focuses on life transitions, meaning-making, grief and loss, ambiguity, and youth empowerment.
