Teaching and Learning Experiences With Foster Parents; A Report on Workshop for Foster Parents Under Title I of the Higher Education Act of 1965.
Georgia State Dept. of Family and Children Services, Atlanta.; West Georgia Coll., Carrollton.
A series of workshops for foster parents in Georgia was held, using the facilities of the counties' continuing education programs. Most of the attendants were foster mothers, primarily because the sessions were held during daytime hours. Films and readings were used to stimulate discussion of child care and development, and of particular problems of children who are separated from their own parents. The sessions were informal and the foster parents were particularly interested in discussing care of premature infants, discipline, adolescents, and health care. Evaluative comments were solicited and received from some of the participants for use in planning future sessions. (Document includes bibliography, film list, workshop working papers, and newspaper publicity.) (mf)
