A couple of weeks ago, the Center for Advanced Studies in Child Welfare held its annual spring conference and the subject of this year's conference was the intersection of disabilities and child welfare.

One of our speakers was Lupe Ortiz-Tovar, who along with her colleague Clay Fink, presented information on the National Resource Center for Youth Development's Making Healthy Choices: A Guide on Psychotropic Medications for Youth in Foster Care. This is a fantastic, youth-centric publication that I could see being a really helpful tool for workers or foster parents or adoptive parents to do along with a teenager who is currently taking psychotropic medications. I would encourage workers and agencies that work with this population to order your free copy of the guide!

The guide is available in English and Spanish.
