THE LATEST RESEARCH IN ONE PLACE.
Being an adolescent is complicated enough. What if you are in foster care? Sexually active? Pregnant? A parent? The ReSHAPING network of scholars is finding out more and improving these experiences.
COVID-19 Vaccine Attitudes among Parenting Foster Care Alumni:
A Call to Action
May 20, 2021
The COVID-19 pandemic has brought numerous stressors for youth in foster care and recent foster care alumni, particularly those who are also parenting young children. In order to better understand the nuances of vaccination attitudes among this population, we conducted in-depth, semi-structured focus groups and interviews with 23 parenting youth with foster care histories.
This webinar will provide an overview of the study findings and include a panel discussion of recommendations and digital health communication related to COVID-19 among young adults.

The latest research
ReSHAPING (Research on Sexual Health and Adolescent Parenting in Out-of-Home Environments Group) is an international network of scholars in social work, public health, public policy, and psychology dedicated to collaborative research on understanding needs and improving outcomes related to sexual health and parenting for youth who are homeless, trafficked, or in out-of-home environments, whether in child welfare, juvenile justice, or other systems.
Through this website and social media, we disseminate our individual and joint work. We also provide information about trainings, other research and reports for those interested in this topic. Our hope is to provide a repository that is useful to researchers, practitioners, and policymakers.
