Building Bridges of Hope After Loss is a self-directed workbook aimed to provide support for foster parents who are grieving the loss of children who joined their families but had to leave either to meet the requirements of the court’s permanency plan or other reasons. The learning objectives focus on learning: (a) what permanency is, (b) the benefits of family reunification, (c) the dynamics of grief and loss, (d) the symptoms associated with grief and loss, (e) coping strategies, and (f) activities that help families say good-bye to children who leave them and become “loss managers.”
This resource is named a workbook not curriculum to be more family-friendly. It uses a self-directed design so that foster parents can work with this resource on their own, with other members of their families and/or other social workers or other service providers. This workbook includes both activities and resources for future support.
