The research findings of 2014 Scholar Melanie Doucet, as part of her doctoral project which she completed in 2018, are now publicly available in a policy & practice-oriented report entitled “Relationships Matter for Youth 'Aging Out' of Care”.

The latter is a photovoice project that Melanie undertook in collaboration with eight former youth in care from the Greater Vancouver area. The report features 12 relationship-related themes emerging from images captured by youth and outlines 34 concrete recommendations for improvements in child welfare policies and practices.

The full report as well as an executive summary are available here
