    DescriptionThe article was a contemporary comment on the ABC's 4 Corners program exploring residential care in Australia.
    I authored an article examining the 4 Corner's program; and provided original commentary and links to relevant research on out of home care in NSW and internationally.
    The article has been read by approx 17,500 people in just over 2 months. It was The Conversation's Editor's pick, and led to an interview with the ABC's PM program and other media outlets. It led to an invitation to write for an international journal for judicial officers and legal practitioners.
