This curriculum was designed to assist caregivers of children in out-of-home care to increase contact among their siblings. The purpose of this curriculum is to provide caregivers with tools and with educational information in order to encourage caregivers to be active participants in promoting sibling contact. The first part of the curriculum is helping caregivers understand their own beliefs and values regarding family and siblings. The second part provides information and statistics regarding siblings in out-of-care. The third part assists caregivers in locating resources, advocating on behalf of the children in their care, and increasing their self-efficacy. The curriculum was designed based on review of the literature examining siblings in out-of-home care in the United States, cultural views of siblings, developmental theories regarding siblings, sibling contact in the Child Welfare System, caregivers of children in out-of home care, and multicultural relevance.
