Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

Connecting foster children with their siblings within a summer camp setting: A grant proposal
by Shirley, Alison, M.S.W., California State University, Long Beach, 2012, 57; 1517790
Abstract (Summary)

Current estimates show that roughly 75% of sibling groups end up having to live apart after they enter the foster care system. The bond that siblings have for one another is a unique and strong one. Most mental health experts today believe that sibling relationships are the longest lasting and one of the most influential relationships that a human being can possess. This project seeks funding to develop a summer camp program that reunites foster children with their biological siblings. In the camp setting, foster children will be able to create and share childhood memories together as siblings.
