Subject:Re: Research on Effective Programs for Working with Adolescents in Child Welfare

Hi, Kate, Hope all is well! :) Here are a couple of leads you may wish to explore: (1) Irwin Elman at the Office of the Provincial Advocate just posted about "Dr Henry Parada and Ryerson University for developing an exemplary model of youth councils in the Dominican Republic". You may wish to explore these individuals further on evidence-informed models that develop resilience through experiences of trauma. (2) My colleagues and I at Western University just launched a free online virtual symposium model that created a centralized hub of resources on how to support the sons/daughters of children. This model and resource can help improve parenting, knowledge exchange, engage youth, etc. More details are available on our website: http://www.sharingsupports.com/ The videos are available until February 2018, but the "Exhibit Hall" with evidence-informed materials, articles, etc. will be available longer. (3) http://www.traumacenter.org/about/about_bessel.php Bessel van der Kolk is one of the leading trauma experts in the United States. He wrote a book called, "The Body Keeps the Score." It has several trauma-informed models that you can explore and possibly adapt within the child welfare field. (4) The Global Association of Interpersonal Neurobiology Studies (http://mindgains.org/) hosts various free webinars, including ones in trauma. It's great to see how we are exploring issues in child welfare that integrate various disciplines, nationally and internationally.
