    Tune in to Segment #9 of This Covid-19 Special which features Dr. Laura S. Abrams:  Dr. Abrams is Chair of the UCLA Luskin School of Public Affairs, Social Welfare Department.

    Listen as Dr. Abrams discusses among other things, how Covid-19 laid bare the healthcare disparities heaped upon BIPOC Populations.  She talks about the connection between those disparities and the racial tensions that boiled over as people across the spectrum took to the streets to declare that things must change.  Dr. Abrams masterfully ties all of this together as she discusses her research and the  overall impact that the Pandemic had on her Social Work Students. especially as they had to abruptly cease their field placements and weren't able to pproperly termintae or say good bye to their clients.  She also talks about her research.

    Professor Abrams’ scholarship focuses on improving the well being of youth and young adults with histories of incarceration. Her ethnographic studies have examined youths’ experiences of criminality, risk, and institutions seeking to reshape their identities through both therapeutic and punitive practices. These themes are presented in her first book Compassionate Confinement: A Year in the Life of Unit C, (Rutgers University Press, 2013). Her second book Everyday Desistance: The Transition to Adulthood Among Formerly Incarcerated Youth (Rutgers University Press, 2017), examines how formerly incarcerated young men and women navigate reentry and the transition to adulthood in the context of urban Los Angeles. She has published over 75 peer-reviewed articles and book chapters, and is the author of two edited volumes: The Voluntary Sector in Prisons (Palgrave, 2016); and The International Handbook of Youth Imprisonment (Routledge, forthcoming).

    Dr. Abrams is currently involved in several studies concerning juvenile justice, reentry, and transition age youth both locally and globally. The Institute on Inequality and Democracy funded a pilot study on global youth justice models in four countries, examining how issues of age, maturity, and culpability are constructed in law and practice. She also recently completed a study of very young offenders, incarceration, and health, funded by the University of California Criminal Justice and Health Consortiumand the UCLA Faculty Senate Trans-disciplinary Seed Grant. She is currently partnering with Professor Laura Wray-Lake on a mixed methods study of civic engagement among urban youth.
