2 – Engaging Teens
Teenagers in foster care have the same struggles as all teens but their capacity may be shaped by the trauma they’ve experienced.
Engaging Teens is about helping CASAs understand this age and advocating from a trauma-informed approach. Finding ways to motivate and inspire are as important as the life skill itself.
This step is focused on education classes and resources to help inspire, motivate and understand this age and are found in the Engaging Teens resource category.
