Interventions for youth aging out of care: A scoping review - ScienceDirect

Globally, youth aging out of the child welfare system face challenges in obtaining education, maintaining employment and securing stable housing. Too many of these individuals are lacking the tools necessary to support a successful transition to independence. Even more troubling, is the lack of research on this phenomenon dispite the plethora of services, programs and policies dedicated to child welfare services.

The Journey Helps Youth Workers ‘Show Up Whole’

Creating a low stress, safe space in which ideas can be shared among peers benefits the entire Youth Work community. With self-care and support, focusing on one's "inner-self" can help to create a stronger Youth Work community. Youth Work retreats help to alleviate some of the main causes of high turnover and burnout in the Youth Work field.

TRAUMA IN OUR COMMUNITY
COMING TOGETHER TO INFORM AND UNITE
JUNE 15-16, 2017

Anyone in the community can be subjected to a wide range of traumatic events, from being physically injured to sustaining traumatic brain injury, to witnessing suffering from the aftermath of violence.

This conference is intended for: teachers, school and youth counselors, psychologists, social workers, medical providers, parents and foster parents, and anyone interested in addressing trauma care throughout the healthcare system.

There is no “quick fix” solution for unseen injuries, but education is the key. Those who have experienced trauma need better service and they need it now.

Join us as we come together to inform and unite.

Join counselors, social workers, clinicians, psychologists, physicians, nurses, and related practitioners as they present trauma-informed practices. Over the course of the two-day conference, attend workshops from local and national experts to increase your knowledge of the needs of the community that surrounds us.
