Report: Building Co-Regulation Capacity to Support Positive Development for Youth with Foster Care Experience

Agencies & Departments : 
Department of Health and Human Services, Administration for Children & Families

This report builds from a body of work that describes how self-regulation can be applied as a framework for promoting health and well-being for youth through ’co-regulation’, which includes Caring, Consistent, & Responsive Relationships; Co-Creation of Supportive Environments; and Intentional and Developmentally-Informed Day-to-Day Interactions. It specifically addresses previously identified research gaps including a lack of effective self-regulation interventions for adolescents, particularly for youth who have experienced an accumulation of acute and chronic stressors.
