2023: Pushing Us Out? Assessing the Needs of Academic Parents in Social Work Doctoral Education
Project Leads: Gabrielle Aquino-Adriatico (University of Houston), Joanna La Torre (University of Washington), Gabriela Mohr (University of Houston), and Jessica Ramirez (University of Washington).
Aquino-Adriatico et al.'s proposal seeks to 1) Survey pregnant individuals, birthing parents, and/or caregivers of children under five years old enrolled in social work doctoral programs to learn about their experiences with accommodations, support, encouragement, and messaging about pregnancy and postpartum needs; and 2) Utilize data from this assessment to inform social work doctoral education programs of the needs of pregnant individuals, birthing parents, and/or caregivers of children under five years old to affect policies and practices that promote student success and greater inclusivity.
