Occupational stress in child welfare negatively impacts society and the health of those working in the profession. However, the utilization of innovative technology may serve as an essential tool for change. This presentation will explore the details of a novel study conducted in America, where multiple cohorts of child protection workers contributed ongoing objective physiological data through wearable biometric technology - during work hours. An interactive discussion will identify opportunities for implementation, as it relates to research design, facilitation, dissemination, and collective advocacy. Robust assessment and evaluation approaches that integrate objective biometric data collection techniques may serve as a viable catalyst for real change in child welfare. 

There will be a 45 minute presentation followed by 30 minutes discussion and Q&A session.

Lead: Austin Griffiths, Ph.D., CSW, Associate Professor, Master of Social Work Program, Director, LifeSkills Center for Child Welfare Education and Research (LCCWEAR), Department of Social Work, Western Kentucky University.
