Social Work Researcher in Report on Project to Help Children

University of Maine assistant professor of social work Jennifer Middleton was interviewed for a Channel 7 (WVII) report that appeared during the 7 a.m. news on Nov. 14. The report detailed a $3.9 million, federally funded, five-year collaborative project led by the Bangor-based Children and Families Together and the UMaine School of Social Work to help families afflicted by substance abuse. The project will study and create a “trauma-informed system of care and the utilization of other evidenced-based practices” to strengthen support services for families struggling with substance abuse, according to Middleton, who is among the project leaders.
