A Promising Model for Transition-Age Youth

Chapin Hall at the University of Chicago has released a new report on a promising model for helping older foster youth successfully transition to adulthood and avoid homelessness. The researchers tracked 98 youth over three years who received service coordination, intensive case management, and Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT). Youth showed significant improvement in employment, financial literacy, and developing connections. Young people involved in the study said their experience with DBT was positive, helping them learn coping skills and regulate their emotions.
