This curriculum was created to target the vulnerable population of approximately 500,000 children living in foster care each year. The purpose of the proposed curriculum is to provide psycho educational therapeutic services to children, ages 11 to 13, in foster care that address important themes/topics related to the formation of identity during the latency stage of development. Throughout the literature, it has been reported that children in foster care are at-risk for developmental difficulties due to their experiences with abuse and instability. This curriculum addresses the challenging aspect of the foster care experience and encourages the construction of a positive self-concept and increased self-esteem through interventions that facilitate self-awareness and the strengths perspective. This curriculum was developed after analyzing the literature and research available about this population of America's children.
