My name is Danae Laut. I am a master’s student at the University of Calgary in the Counselling Psychology program. For my thesis project I am looking at how youth experience the transitions out of foster care. I am hoping that the information from this research will provide further information about how former foster care children can be supported into adulthood.
I am looking for individuals between the age of 19 and 35, who aged out of the foster care system, and feel they are doing well since the transition out of care. If you are interested in participating you will be asked to complete up to two, 1-2 hour interviews that will ask about your experience of leaving the foster care system, the challenges you faced, and how you overcame them. These interviews will be audio-recorded if you agree to participate.
If you are interested in participating, or have any questions please email me at email@example.com, direct message me, or call me at 403-771-0964.
You will be given a 25$ Cadillac gift card, as thanks for participating in the study.
This study has been approved by the Conjoint Faculties Research Ethics Board at the University of Calgary.

karenheald42: Hello John, Is there anyway to send you a longer message to explain my situation? I have so much to ask and get cleared up. My children mean the world to me and they are my 3 angels. CAS has really got a tight hold on them.
