With the increase of Covid-19 in California, and a statewide shelter-in-place order, entire communities have experienced disruption. In the context of TAY foster youth needs, these changes have resulted in changing practices in addressing the needs of foster youth who are entering the child welfare system or transitioning placement.

This training reviews some of the service approach considerations who work with transition aged youth who have entered the foster care system through Alameda County Social Services. Special discussion focuses on on developmental considerations during the pandemic, establishing remote relationships with TAY foster youth and families, safety considerations for CSEC youth, managing crises, and engaging resource families and treatment teams as collaborators in services, and uses interactive training methodologies to discuss creative approaches for engagement, screening, and services.
