by Felix, Reyneida C., M.S.W., California State University, Long Beach, 2015, 69; 1586502
Abstract (Summary)

This project proposes the development of and funding for modules that could be used in a training program or curriculum for prospective and experienced foster parents to help prepare and support their children for the fostering experience. This project aims to provide tools to help foster parents and agency staff assess and support families' abilities, resources, and willingness to strengthen relationships between their children and the children who will be placed with their families. A literature review details the demographics of children in family foster care and foster families, the impact of fostering on children whose parents foster, and current and proposed interventions to support foster families regarding the impact of fostering on their children. A host organization is recommended to develop and disseminate these resources, and potential funders are identified. Actual submission and/or funding for this project were not required for the successful completion of this work.
