Course Description

CE Course Description

Family conflict is a key driver of youth homelessness, and most programs serving youth experiencing homelessness use some form of family intervention to address conflict and help reconnect youth with families when appropriate. This intermediate level continuing education course was developed using information from the Urban Institute in order to summarize existing evidence on family intervention strategies for youth experiencing or at risk of homelessness, to outline common elements of effective interventions, and to discuss gaps in the evidence base. Evidence-based and evidence-informed interventions are discussed as well as challenges of implementing family intervention models.

CE Course Objectives

1. Identify ways that family conflict impacts homelessness among youth as well as the importance of engaging families in the intervention process.

2. Differentiate between evidence-based and evidence-informed interventions for youth impacted by homelessness, and discuss their core components.

3. Evaluate how promising and emerging strategies can be developed to aid in prevention, reconnection, and reunification for youth impacted by homelessness.

4. Summarize research findings pertaining to family intervention strategies for homeless youth, and key lessons learned.

5. Outline the limitations and challenges of implementing family intervention models with youth experiencing homelessness.

6. Highlight research gaps, needs, and recommendations that impact the application and success of family interventions to help homeless youth.
