The number of families in the foster care system continues to grow due to new families entering the system and failed family reunification. The strength of a parent-child attachment is key in having a success reunification. Parent-child relationships are strained from the abusive relationship they had in the past and are further strained from their separation while the child is placed in foster care. By increasing parents' sensitivity to their children's emotional and behavioral needs, it is possible to positively influence their relationship. The overarching goal of this grant proposal is to fund additional services to families post reunification. Services will be geared towards helping the parent-child interaction with the re-attachment process in order to reduce re-entry into foster care. The actual submission and/or funding of this grant was not a requirement for the successful completion of the project.
