The purpose of this learning opportunity is to convey the importance of supporting and maintaining connections with those the youth has had a past relationship.  This could include biological family members, prior foster parents, coaches, teachers, etc. In this program, continued connections means honoring the teens’ former attachments, recognizing and accepting that the teen has another family and previous connections, and understanding the teen’s attachment and loyalty to that family may be significant.  Once you have completed exploring this information, you will have better understanding of the following learning objectives:

  • Understand the importance of maintaining and supporting past connections for the youth
  • Understanding the importance of siblings bonds and relationships.
  • Supporting youth through separation and loss
