Webinar - Focusing on Youth Well-being: New Information about Applying a Protective and Promotive Factors Approach for Adolescents in Foster Care

February 14, 2013

A National Resource Center for Permanency and Family Connections Webinar

Wednesday, February 20, 2013, 3:00-4:30 PM ET / 2:00-3:30 PM CT / 12:00-1:30 PM PT

In February of 2012, Dr. Charlyn Harper Browne and Susan Notkin of the Center for the Study of Social Policy (CSSP) presented in the NRCPFC Webinar, Focusing on Well-Being: Developing a Protective Factors Framework for Youth in Care. NRCPFC is pleased that they will build on that presentation and provide updated information about their work in this upcoming event. During the past year, Dr. Harper Browne and Ms. Notkin have further developed Youth Thrive, CSSP’s research-based Protective and Promotive Factors Framework for adolescents. Additionally, they have continued to explore ways in which this orientation and framework can be used to inform policies and practices in the child welfare system. The presenters will provide an overview and description of Youth Thrive’s protective and promotive factors. The presenters will also discuss recent work they have been doing and next steps related to the application of their findings to child welfare policies and practices and CSSP’s effort to identify exemplary programs that build these protective and promotive factors to support youth well-being and positive development. The webinar will close with a question and answer period.  Space is limited. To register and learn more, visit:
