Foster youth transitioning to new placements can struggle to establish stability, which at times is magnified due to the failures of collaboration within the system of care. This training looks at the role of service providers in supporting foster youth. Participants are encouraged to discuss youth engagement strategies in the midst of high-conflict systems/teams. This training will review approaches to develop and encourage positive ethics while working with youth in care. Providers will identify signs and symptoms of compassion failure. Discuss and name challenges inherent in the work with foster youth. There will be opportunity in small-group discussion for participants to develop solution-oriented techniques to manage compassion failure.
