What Psychological Impact Do Detained Children Face?

A discussion with the director of the Frances McClelland Institute for Children, Youth and Families.

Getting a better understanding about the care immigrant children receive when they are in the federal government's custody is a challenge for journalists and policymakers. Arizona 360 wanted to understand some of the psychological effects children in these circumstances may experience. We got insight from Andrea Romero, director of the Frances McClelland Institute for Children, Youth and Families. The institute does research in collaboration with the University of Arizona on childhood development.
