This research focused on young adults who had aged out of the foster-care system and who had a history of homelessness and trauma. Programming measured the impact of pre–post group-based OT on facilitating progress toward employment-related goals while decreasing perceived stress levels. Results showed positive clinical significance trending toward statistical significance.
