Preparing Youth for the Transition into Adulthood: A Process Description
Ringle, Jay L.; Ingram, Stephanie; Newman, Veronica; Thompson, Ronald W.; Waite, Thomas
Residential Treatment for Children & Youth, v24 n3 p231-242 2007
This article describes the process that youth in a large residential out-of-home care program complete as they prepare for the transition into adulthood. This process is geared toward preparing these young people through a series of structured real-life activities and lessons. Results from a separate 5-year follow-up study indicate that those who completed this process report more positive functional outcomes than those who did not. Also addressed is the importance of effective after-care services to help these young adults maintain the gains established during treatment. (Contains 2 tables.)
