A presentation by the L.A. Gay & Lesbian Center about resilience and the importance of emotional support for LGBTQ transitional age youth as part of the RISE (Recognize Intervene Support Empower) initiative.
This presentation explains how the Illinois Permanecy Innovations Initiative (PII) project expects to increase rates of permanency for the target population and it describes the intervention being used, Trauma Affect Regulation: Guide for Education and Therapy (TARGET), a strength-based approach to education and therapy when youth and their families have been affected by trauma or experience a high level of stress related to adverse experiences.
This presentation provides background on homeless and LGBTQ youth in Los Angeles County and highlights the components of RISE - an intervention developed through the Permanency Innovations Initiative - to help youth in foster care achieve permanency.
The presentation outlines the Department of Defense's prevention programs and how they are geared to provide support to active duty and reserve component members and their children, youth, and families.
