This film was developed by the Center for Child Trauma Assessment, Services, and Interventions (CCTASI) at Northwestern University, in collaboration with ReMoved Films (creator, Nathanael Matanick) and partners in the National Child Traumatic Stress Network (NCTSN). This film series is designed to raise awareness about the unique trauma-related needs and strengths among transition age youth (TAY) in juvenile justice and foster care systems. Considering the continuum of care, this film highlight strategies, supports, and advice to providers that can build resilience among older youth as they transition out of these systems. These are the stories of youth becoming adults, set in the world of child welfare and the justice system. These transition age youth have powerful insights to offer those following in their footsteps and to the adults who support them. Understanding Transition Age Youth (TAY) is a documentary film highlighting the stories and experiences of a diverse group of system-involved young adults who have transitioned out of child welfare and juvenile justice settings.
