Discussing racial injustice and history with children is an important part of ending systemic racism and inequity. We found a couple of books to consider sharing with your child and to keep in your reading rotation.

"Something Happened in Our Town" written by Marianne Celano PhD, Marietta Collins PhD, Ann Hazzard PhD and Illustrated by Jennifer Zivoin follows the discussions of families after the shooting of a Black man in their community and aims to answer children's questions about such traumatic events that happen way too often. Guidelines for discussing race and racism with children are included.

"A Child's Introduction to African American History: The Experiences, People, and Events That Shaped Our Country" written by Jabari Asim and illustrated by Lynn Gaines goes beyond what's taught in schools to give a comprehensive look at African American history -- from the slave trade to the Black Lives Matter movement.

"The thing I felt was the most helpful from the program was the hands-on field work that we were able to do. I was assigned a case within the week of starting my internship and was able to be hands on and follow it through the entire year. I'm most looking forward to doing that again but confidently and as the official lead of the case."

My name is Brittany Chalupa, and I am a passionate social worker dedicated to driving positive social change through Policy, Administration, and Communities (PAC). My overall goal is to take advocating change to the next level in hopes of creating social equity and justice while simultaneously creating effective policies that strive for social balance.

I was born and raised in Glendale, Arizona. My parents struggled with substance use disorders and ultimately lost their lives when I was 20 and 21. My parent's death occurred during my undergraduate career to obtain a bachelor's degree in Elementary Education. However, once I graduated, I quickly learned that being in the classroom was not my passion. Experiencing the loss of my parents pushed me to want to help children in the child welfare system. In 2016, I became a Department of Child Safety (DCS) Specialist. Throughout my career with DCS, I discovered that social work was my passion. In addition, I discovered the path of macro social work and the improvements that the child welfare system could entail. As a result, I applied for the Child Welfare Education Program offered through DCS and was accepted. In 2020, my journey for a Master's in Social Work (MSW) began.

Throughout the MSW three-year program, I completed an internship with Hospice of the Valley's New Song Center for Grieving Children (NSC), totaling 480 hours, and an internship with Arizona Veterinary Emergency and Critical Care Center (AVECCC). Throughout the MSW program, I have been able to analyze how macro social work impacts communities. I have been exposed to the micro, mezzo, and macro levels of social work throughout my internships. In addition, I completed a grant for NSC, designed a grief support program for AVECCC, and dived deep into policies that affect our communities. These projects and the coursework have enhanced my skills to serve Arizona families better and create system changes within DCS.

Protective factors are conditions or attributes that increase the well-being of children and families and reduce the likelihood of maltreatment.

Protective Factor 6: Social and emotional competence of children
Parents support healthy social and emotional development in children when they model how to express and communicate emotions effectively, self-regulate, and make friends. A child's social and emotional competence is crucial to sound relationships with family, adults, and peers. Conversely, delayed social-emotional development may obstruct healthy relationships. Early identification of such delays and early assistance for children and parents can provide support for family relationships and sustain positive and appropriate development.

Protective factors are conditions or attributes that increase the well-being of children and families and reduce the likelihood of maltreatment.

Protective Factor 5: Concrete supports for parents
Partnering with parents to identify and access resources in the community may help prevent the stress that sometimes precipitates child maltreatment. Providing concrete supports may also help prevent the unintended neglect that sometimes occurs when parents are unable to provide for their children.
