Jane M. Spinak: The End of Family Court

1/22/2024
In the early 1900s, America’s cities were teeming with immigrants whose children toiled in factories and lived in overcrowded tenements in neighborhoods plagued by disease, poverty, violence, and crime. In response, a group of social reformers embarked on a mission to protect children and mold them into productive, law-abiding citizens. Known as child-savers, these overwhelming white and well-off reformers laid the therapeutic foundation for family court. At its core was the Great Idea that judges would take the lead and provide, whether preventive or rehabilitative, personalized justice for the child. “This mandate to do good was never accomplished, not then and not now,” states Jane M. Spinak, a lawyer who has received numerous awards for her work on behalf of children and families. In The End of Family Court: How Abolishing the Court Brings Justice to Children and Families (NYU Press; August 1, 2023), she explores why the Great Idea persists, and how, 120 years after its inception, family court fails to do justice and often does great harm to children, their families, and their communities. She will discuss steps for reform to bring justice to children.

David Schenck: Into The Field of Suffering

1/15/2024
David Schenck is co-author of two previous books on ethics and healing in healthcare, Healers: Extraordinary Clinicians at Work and What Patients Teach: Everyday Ethics of Healthcare. Schenck taught philosophy and religion for 20 years and has published widely in bioethics, philosophy, and religious studies. He was founding executive director of a free medical clinic, a healthcare advocate for the homeless, and a 25-year hospice volunteer. He will discuss how caregivers can develop the awareness skills to avoid burnout and find renewal. Drawing on hundreds of conversations with healthcare workers and caregivers, patients and families, Schenck and Neely offer a radically different perspective on caregiving—as not a trial to be endured but an opportunity for learning and transformation to be embraced. Through simple practices, caregivers will develop the awareness skills to avoid burnout and find renewal. Yes, it’s “a spiritual venture,” the authors affirm, but it’s eminently sensible and practical too.

Encore Mark and Mary Kay Liston: Diagnosed

12/25/2023
Authors Mark and Mary Kay Liston share their faith-filled journey in addition to stories of 26 others to help readers cope with life-altering diagnoses in Diagnosed: Inspirational Stories After an Alarming Medical Diagnosis. Can a difficult diagnosis create a stronger faith? On November 3, 2022, Mark and Mary Kay Liston went to the ER to treat a nasty cough that Mark had picked up. After hours, the doctor entered the room and gave Mark the somber diagnosis of lung cancer, indicating a ping pong-sized lump in his lung. To Mark, who was a healthy, lifelong non-smoker, the diagnosis was both shocking and confusing. In the following 76 days, he journaled and wrote notes down on all his daily medical interactions, doctor and hospital appointments, and medications given. This meticulous process of fact-finding, coupled with the author's friend-and-family invitation for, and inclusion of, 26 others' stories of similar life-threatening diagnoses, resulted in the compilation and creation of Diagnosed: Inspirational Stories After an Alarming Medical Diagnosis. The Listons divided the book into two different sections: the first section for the 26 individuals interviewed who share their diagnosis/recovery stories, and the second section for the authors' own story. Each individual who shared had a different story. Each had survived cancer or another life-altering illness, or cared for someone who had. Each one offered special insights. Yet, all are inspirational stories that can help any reader cope with their own possible life-altering diagnosis. 90% of the patients interviewed shared the importance that their faith in God, and prayer, had played in their recovery story as they, along with the author team, all navigated the powerful, healing waters of faith.
