(1) the establishment of non-judgmental, supportive relationships;
(2) youth-driven goals and expectations;
and (3) institutional practices and policies that prioritize safety and youth involvement. According to Leonard et al. (2017), PYD can be successfully integrated when agency staff carefully develop supportive relationships with youth by respecting youths’ autonomy by inviting youth to engage but not forcing or cajoling them. Youth appreciate staff’s lack of judgment. Furthermore, PYD can be successfully implemented when youths’ needs are considered at all levels of policy and procedure development. For example, the agency under study decided to decline funding from certain sources that required the agency to describe their youth clients as “delinquent”. Such decisions and priorities, supported by both agency staff and administration, allow for the implementation of the PYD framework in a hectic shelter environment with homeless youth.

Leonard, N. R., Freeman, R., Ritchie, A. S., Gwadz, M. V., Tabac, L., Dickson, V. V., ... & Hirsh, M. (2017). “Coming from the place of walking with the youth—That feeds everything”: A mixed methods case study of a runaway and homeless youth organization. Child and Adolescent Social Work Journal, 34(5), 443-459.

Could you please give us a clue about how service users apply for the occupational therapy service of SRACP? As we want to evaluate the convenience for applicants to get access to this service.

Hi, I realized that it seems the concept “outcome” is different from the term “output”. Taking the grandparent training project as an example, what is the “outcome’ referable?
