In the Midst of Plenty: Homelessness and What to Do About It
November 19, 2020 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm
“In the Midst of Plenty: Homelessness and What to Do About It” is a new book by Dr. Marybeth Shinn (Vanderbilt University) and Dr. Jill Khadduri (Abt Associates) that argues that recent studies show how to prevent and end homelessness if we have the political will to do so.
Join Drs. Shinn and Khadduri for a webinar in which they discuss the origins of the current epidemic of homelessness in poverty, rising housing costs, and social exclusion and solutions that include expanding the Housing Choice Voucher program and following a housing first strategy for people with behavioral health challenges.
The webinar will be hosted by the Society for the Psychological Study of Social Issues (SPSSI), which published the new book. The webinar is also open to SPSSI members and non-members alike. It will be recorded and posted to SPSSI’s YouTube channel afterward for people who are not able to attend the live event.
