Lifelong Connections: Permanency for Older Youth

In-Person Session
The Northwest Ohio Regional Training Center (711 Adams Street, Toledo, OH 43604)

Lamar Graham & Brian Lowery, Instructors
ITNA Code: 210-26-NOS
6 Credit Hours

When planning for permanency with adolescents, we have to think and use approaches differently from when planning for younger children. Permanency for older youth is not centered around the living arrangement; it is not simply providing independent living services; and it is not just offering adoption. Instead, it provides youth with the opportunity to forge lifelong permanent connections to people they identify as important. This training allows participants to experience the impact of permanent connections and grasp why they are important. Finally, participants will come to understand how adolescent development relates to permanency. It is strongly recommended that participants attend 202-35-NOS (CW and FC 12 hr) Positive Youth Development: The Vital Link  prior to attending this workshop.
