Pollack_57297A-11An article co-written by Dr. Daniel Pollack, professor at YU’s Wurzweiler School of Social Work, will appear in an upcoming issue of Temple Political and Civil Rights Law Review. The article, which Pollack co-authored with Khaya Eisenberg and Amanda Sundarsingh, seeks to determine whether a history of foster care involvement should serve as a legitimate mitigating circumstance for a defendant in criminal trial by exploring the effects of abusive, neglect and other traumatic experiences which have been linked to the development of a number of emotional/mental, social/behavioral, and relational problems, including—but not limited to—anxiety, depression, substance abuse and attachment issues.
