Abstract/Description:
The purpose of this study was to analyze potential relationships between the domains of behavioral outcomes, social skills, and academic performance for youth in foster care and remaining longer in care. This study utilized data from three waves in the NSCAW II dataset, including youth (N =296) between the ages of 11 and 17 years. Multiple linear regression was utilized to assess the association between the three domains and the number of days spent in foster care. Findings were not significant, exposing the need for more studies on contextual variables that might be consistent with children living in out of home care. Limitations of the study were reviewed. Potential research and practice implications of the results were considered.
