A new brochure describing the care planning model “Care Planning for Resilience” has been published by YSAS and the Centre for Youth AOD Practice Development.
With support from the Sidney Myer Fund, the Centre for Youth AOD Practice Development at YSAS has created a resource for Resi Care workers and Foster Carers. The OoHC Toolbox contains information and guidance on responding to common issues faced by the young people in OoHC, including substance use, self-injury, sexualised behaviours and mental health concerns. Check out the Out of Home CareToolbox.
The Youth AOD Learning Hub has been developed. It provides practitioners with a structured, guided course through the skills and knowledge necessary to be effective in Youth AOD practice. Clinical supervisors will also be able to utilise the Hub through the Reflective Practice Guides for Supervisors provided with each Course.
