#TAY101 is a curriculum aimed to provide support for child welfare workers who work with young adults in foster care who are entering adulthood. The learning objectives focus on learning: (a) the special needs of youth who have been separated from their families and are in the foster care system because of emotional abuse, general neglect, and physical abuse and sexual abuse; (b) how acute, chronic, and complex trauma impacts the cognitive, emotional, social, and sometimes physical growth and development of young people in the foster care system; (c) how to build a trusting relationship with young people to engage them in an assessment of their strengths, needs, and plans for their own futures; (d) how to be sensitive to the strengths and needs of ethnic and sexual minority young people because of risk factors unique to their demographics; (e) how to be committed to finding as many possible family, non-related extended family, and others who may be able to be nurturing, supportive and, possibly, resourceful; (f) how to identify and use the community resources that can be of support to young people as they transition from foster care to being responsible and successful members of their communities; (g) how to connect young people with available assessment, planning, and other tools creating especially for their circumstances; and (h) how to enable young people, their "significant others", and community services to collaborate to support lifelong connections.
