Children & Youth Transitions from Foster Care Hardback
Edited by Joseph A. Ferrari
While most young people have access to emotional and financial support systems throughout their early adult years, older youth in foster care and those who are emancipated from care often face obstacles to developing independent living skills and building supports that ease the transition to adulthood.
Older foster youth who return to their parents or guardians may continue to experience poor family dynamics or a lack of emotional and financial supports.
This book provides an overview of the federal foster care system and provisions in federal foster care law that are intended to help prepare youth for adulthood.
