Education for Foster Family Care: Models and Methods for Foster Parents and Social Workers.
Stone, Helen D.; Hunzeker, Jeanne M.
This book provides basic material on preservice and inservice instructional programming for foster parents and foster family social workers, and describes a number of program models in which these basic materials are being implemented. The materials (most of which were developed for the June 1973 Invitational Training Seminar at St. Louis University) are organized around five basic topics: (1) preservice training for foster parents prior to child placement; (2) inservice training for foster parents; (3) practical approaches to program staff training and development; (4) funding resources; and (5) resources for developing program content. Background information, seminar course outlines, descriptions of from two to five currently operating models, and reading and film resources are presented for each of the four basic types of training programs (preservice and inservice parent training, worker training, and staff development). Educational principles, methods, and resources for noneducators (social workers) who become program instructors are suggested. Various funding resources are identified and described; lists of related resources (publications, inexpensive published materials, films, and publishers of referenced materials) are included. (ED)
