The journey to adulthood is a big step for most young people. However, for young people leaving care it may be far more difficult, coping with major changes in their lives, at a younger age, especially if they lack preparation and support. "Young People's Pathways from Care to Adulthood" explores the journey from care to adulthood through the main challenges they face - being in settled accommodation, fulfilling their potential in education, employment or training, and achieving good health and a positive sense of wellbeing. For each of these pathways this will include a comprehensive review of what research studies reveal about the problems young people encounter, how they may be supported on these pathways in meeting these challenges, and how the services they receive may promote their resilience, helping them to fulfil their potential as young adults. This is an essential book for all those who work with young people from care, including social workers, personal advisers, counsellors, teachers, policy makers, researchers and students.
