Youth in the foster care system are often pathologized and labeled with diagnoses that highlight problems within youth. This training provides context to the diagnoses that are assigned to youth, and the contextual considerations that may influence mental health needs and conditions. Within this training, participants will also review screening tools that are used in order to understand youth’s needs. Participants will have opportunities for reflection and group discussion. Additionally, participants will be encouraged to practice ways of uncovering youth’s needs with them.
