Ethical Considerations in Foster-Adoption with Christina Feliciana, LCSW, PACT

Christina Feliciana, LCSW, has been teaching in the UC Berkeley School of Social Welfare and supporting MSW students in their internships since 2007. She teaches courses on child welfare practice, school social work, and an introduction to multi-level practice. She previously was employed as a child welfare worker and as a school social worker. She coordinates the Title IVE program, an intensive curriculum designed to prepare social workers to work in children’s protective services in California. Christina also consults with SOAR for Youth, a foster youth educational advocacy program. Christina and her spouse are fost/adopt parents. Their older daughter joined their family at six months old. When she was nearly two, her biological sister (age three months) joined the family. They have contact with the girls' first mom and feel blessed to raise the sisters together. Christina also serves as a Pact Board member.
