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. Together we will examine 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.
