Presenters will discuss the many transitions experienced by young traumatized children in the child welfare system and the challenges that they pose for young children. Whether responding to the transition from the biological parents' home to a foster home, from foster home to foster home, or the changes brought on by reunification, those working with young children in the child welfare system will benefit from gaining an understanding of the many effects of these transitions as well as methods for appropriate facilitation of transitions.
