Toolbox #3: Facilitating Permanency for YouthBy:
Gerald P. Mallon
Facilitating permanency for youth in foster care can be challenging. Although the child welfare system has maintained in its policies and practices a clear focus for younger children in need of permanency, it has been less explicit on the logistics of facilitating that goal. This publication focuses on promising practices and approaches shown to promote permanency for youth. Contents include a current literature and research review; highlights of promising strategies, partnerships, and innovative public policies; case review prototypes; strategies for including the adolescent in the service planning process; definitions of outcomes for adolescent permanency; and many other areas. This book will provide practitioners with the vision and the practical guidance needed to facilitate and support permanency for youth and thus improve youth chances for safety, permanency, and well-being.
