GAL District 26 | Youth Driven Permanency | 12/5/19

December 5, 2019 @ 9:30 am - 12:00 pm


Professional Training and Consultation

Youth Driven Permanency

Research shows that youth are most invested in permanency efforts when they are active participants in the process. Facilitating and nurturing youth involvement means working from a strengths-based perspective and focusing on resilience rather than deficits. This training examines the latest research involving foster alumni, looks at strategies for cultivating resilience to improve outcomes, and considers age-appropriate ways to include youth in permanency planning.
