Dr. Krysik joins us this episode to talk about this important issue, the center, and her up-coming conference. The Children of Incarcerated Parents National Conference seeks to bring together professionals across a multitude of child well-being disciplines to share information and research across our silos to discuss solutions in reducing the stigma of parental incarceration. The conference will be held April 14-17, 2019 in Phoenix, Arizona at the Renaissance Downtown Phoenix Hotel. For more information visit: https://childwellbeing.asu.edu/CIP
