The barriers foster care youth with an incarcerated parent experience will be examined, and the intersection of parental criminal justice involvement and child welfare involvement will be explored. Protective factors that buffer the effect of parental incarceration will be shared. Practice implications for counselors who support foster care youth who have an incarcerated parent will be shared.
