A study assessed the utility and short-term impact of using the Bridge's Transitions Framework with 63 foster youth. Findings provided preliminary evidence that the Transitions Framework may be a promising tool to help foster youth understand how change effects them and ease the strain of transition. after training and immersion into the framework, participating youth were more accepting of their transition experiences and more optimistic that they had the ability to guide their own futures.
