Fulbright winner Mary Beth Rauktis heads to Portugal



Follow Fulbright awardee Mary Beth Rauktis on her blog https://portolistening.blog/ as she purses her child welfare research at the University of Porto, Portugal. Rauktis will study restriction of living environment as part of a team tasked with assessing the needs of children and youth and the quality of care provided in residential institutions. Portugal is currently conducting a nationwide evaluation of its residential child welfare care system, and the information collected using the restrictiveness of living environment measure or REM-Y can be used to help inform policies and practices which support developmentally appropriate out-of-home care for children/youth in the country.
