Overcoming: Learning about Resilience from Adults with Care Experience

Hosted by the CAFO Center on Applied Research for Vulnerable Children & Families

Research shows that children outside of parental care face a host of challenges. However, less research has explored the strengths and positive outcomes for these children as adults. Understanding what formal or informal interventions are correlated with better outcomes can help us know what actions to encourage or repeat as we serve children outside parental care.

Join us as we learn together about the ways that we can foster increased resilience and impact children outside of parental care towards positive outcomes as they transition to adulthood.
