Enhancing the Empowerment of Youth in Foster Care: Supportive Services
Kaplan, Sandra J.; Skolnik, Louise; Turnbull, Ayme
Child Welfare, v88 n1 p133-161 2009
This paper reviews the research on youth empowerment in seven child welfare programmatic areas. A lack of studies specifically focused on the empowerment of youth in foster care was found. Conceptual perspectives and existing data, however, suggest that the empowerment of youth in and transitioning out of care is essential and should be overtly facilitated through policy and program development. (Contains 9 tables.)
