Creating Opportunities for Expectant and Parenting Youth: A Co-parenting Approach

 

The Expectant and Parenting Youth in Foster Care Learning Collective, housed at the Center for the Study of Social Policy, welcomed Dr. Paul Florsheim, Professor and Clinical Psychologist at the Zilber School of Public Health at University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, presented findings from the Young Parenthood Project designed to test the efficacy of a co-parenting counseling program for parenting and expecting adolescents. He discussed implementation efforts, challenges and implications for those considering this approach to supporting expectant and parenting youth and their children. Additionally, two young parents who have spent time in the foster care system shared their experience co-parenting and offered their insights on what is working well, challenges and recommendations.
