Emerging adulthood: Implications for Scotland's care experienced young people and those who work to support them


This free online session will introduce emerging adulthood theory as a social concept and will explore and address its implications for Scotland's care system.

The webinar will discuss how to support a better understanding of the development needs of young people and how this theory can support the aspirations of the Independent Care Review's The Promise by enabling more effective implementation of practice and provision.

With time for attendees to engage in discussion, the webinar will be looking at:

  • What are they key messages and what does this mean for you and your practice?
  • Emerging adulthood in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic
  • What does this mean for our care experienced young people in Scotland?
  • What are the policy and systems implications within a Scottish context?
