The Utility of Crisis Intervention in Addressing AWOL from Out-of-Home Placement Settings

Room: Virtual Platform - togetherthevoice.vfairs.com

This workshop frames AWOL as a maladaptive coping response in youth who are vulnerable to experiencing out-of-home placement as a crisis-inducing event. This understanding of some youth as “in crisis” after entering placement enables new approaches to reducing AWOL outcomes.
