Improving Outcomes of Infants and Toddlers in High Risk Families (Workshop 141)
This presentation addresses the alarming increase in the numbers of very young children, 0-3, who have come into the child protection system, focusing on the resources that must be in place when such very young children enter foster care and permanency decisions are required within brief time frames. The workshop identifies the skills needed to assess the developmental risks of infants and toddlers in high-risk situations and also explores measuring the capacity of families to respond with strengths as well as understanding the moderating factors in risk behaviors.
