The Family Telehealth Project
The Family Telehealth Project is funded by the Visa Foundation and the American Psychology-Law Society. Designed to meet the unique needs of youth and families impacted by the child welfare system in California, the study involves adapting an empirically supported family-based affect management intervention in collaboration with key stakeholders (youth, caregivers, child welfare, probation, court, school) to be delivered via telehealth. The intervention was also linguistically and culturally adapted for delivery to Spanish-speaking caregivers, including modifications to enhance cultural meaning and relevance. The study aims to improve behavioral health outcomes and reduce housing instability among youth involved in the child welfare system by increasing youth and caregivers’ affect management abilities and improving the caregiver-youth relationship.
Child-welfare involved youth (ages 12-18 years) and their caregivers are eligible to participate in the Family Telehealth Project. Caregivers of origin can participate with
their youth or individually. Kinship and foster caregivers can participate individually. Participants will receive compensation in the form of gift cards for completing brief surveys.
