The purpose of “Helping Foster Parents and Kinship Caregivers Support High School Graduation for Children in Their Care: A Self-Instructional Workbook” is to help parents and caregivers with the young people in their care to navigate the crucial last 2 years of high school and graduate. It is renamed “Guidelines to Graduation” to be more user-friendly. This project included a literature review and a rationale for a self-instructional design. Activities include: true/false questions about the benefits of graduation, identification of strengths and positive traits, personal resources, and strategies for motivating youth.
Foster and kinship caregivers may work individually, with family members, or with child welfare workers. The design aims to: (a) accommodate foster and kinship caregiver’s busy schedules; (b) allow for caregivers to learn at their own pace; (c) skip or go back to sections that are predominantly helpful; (d) provide a suitable and comprehensive guide that enhances parenting abilities.
