Foster Youths in Transition: Research Perspectives on Preparation for Independent Living.
Mech, Edmund V.
Child Welfare, v73 n5 p603-23 Sep-Oct 1994
The child welfare field is uncertain how to best prepare older foster wards for independent living. Research priorities in this area are discussed in five categories: (1) education and school-to-work transitions; (2) formal assessments of readiness for self-sufficiency; (3) provision of transitional supports; (4) support networks; and (5) caregivers and placement settings as developmental resources.
