Factors supporting successful transitions from care

The first wave of findings from the Victorian government's Beyond 18: The Longitudinal Study on Leaving Care report involving surveys of 202 young people in out-of-home care aged 16–19 years old suggest that although successful transitions from out-of-home care are found in the literature to involve comprehensive transition planning, in Victoria legislative and practice guidelines were often not followed and that young people were frequently not involved in formal, structured planning about their future. For most carers and caseworkers, formal transition planning was relatively low in priority compared to more urgent needs such as housing. Over a third of young people in the study indicated that they had not been able to access all the services they needed when in care, with many indicating that they lacked help with mental health issues. Caseworkers similarly identified mental health services as difficult to access and lacking in capacity, especially for high needs clients. Future research reports from the study will detail young people's post-care outcomes and the factors influencing their outcomes.

Inside Out: Understanding and supporting relationships in out-of-home care
Brisbane - Wednesday, 31st October
Presented by Compass Seminars

Some children who need love the most, ask for it in the most unloving ways. This can be particularly true for children in out-of-home care whose complex histories of abuse, neglect and disrupted attachment, often cause them to reject adults who are trying to care and support for them. Making sense of the processes behind their often difficult behaviour can assist professionals and carers to facilitate change and healing. This workshop introduces the Relational Learning Framework (RLF), a case conceptualisation tool which helps out-of-home care practitioners, mental health professionals  and foster carers to examine what foster children have learned in their early life about relationships, particularly through abuse and neglect. Grounded in attachment theory and drawing on cognitive theory this workshop helps practitioners to understand and respond to the challenging behaviour presented by these children and remove barriers to an empathic response. Find out more and register.
