messages from research for policy and

Organised by: Making Research Count at

Speaker:
Professor Mike Stein, Research Professor, in the
Social Policy Research Unit at York University
This seminar will explore the concept of resilience in relation to young people leaving care and
becoming adult. It will draw upon on research studies of their lives in care, their transitions
from care and their lives after care, including their main pathways to adulthood: moving into
settled, safe, accommodation of their choice; entering further or higher education, or training;
finding satisfying employment, and; achieving good health and a positive sense of well-being.
It is intended that this material will provide the opportunity for participants to explore in small
groups the policy and practice implications in supporting young people on their pathways to
adulthood.
Mike has worked as a probation officer, a senior child care officer and an area manager.
During the last 30 years he have been researching the problems and challenges faced by
vulnerable young people, including care leavers, maltreated adolescents and young people
running away from home and care. Mike has been involved in the preparation of Guidance for
Leaving Care legislation in the UK and the development of leaving care services
internationally.The seminar is based upon Stein M (2012) Young people leaving care,
supporting pathways to adulthood, Jessica Kingsley
