In 2016, approximately 421,000 children were in out- of- home foster care. Thirty-five percent of these children experienced two or more placement changes. Recidivism (the tendency of a convicted criminal to reoffend) for youth in out-of-home placement is four times higher than children who have never been involved with the child welfare system. Since this is an at risk population, this research is important for understanding, preventing and intervening to decrease recidivism as adults.
