Complexity of Care for Youth in Foster Care
This Institute provides clinicians with information on critical topics about traumatized youth who are involved with the child welfare system. Attendees develop an understanding of the rates and types of psychopathology of traumatized youth; learn of efforts to incorporate best practices in the evaluation and treatment of youth in foster care; and gain insight into the utilization of psychotropic medication in this population and mechanisms to provide oversight. Three evidence-based psychosocial therapies that may be used as primary treatment or in conjunction with psychotropic medications are presented.
