Computational Text Analysis Working Group (CTAWG) 

Title: Returning to Foster Care: Revisited with Computational Text Analysis 

Abstract: Child welfare agencies access families for child abuse and neglect and mak recoomendations regarding a placement plan for the child. This project investigates cases where children re-enter to foster care following an exit to permanent care arrangements. Past research on reentry to foster care has focused primarily on structured data such as age, race, and mental health, etc. This project is a work in progress where we tap into the unstructured text data associated with these cases and discuss the potential questions arising from a computational text driven analysis.

Presenter: Alicia Tsai, EECS PhD student at UC Berkeley.
