The Selection of Foster Parents: Manual for Homefinders.
Cautley, Patricia W.; Lichstein, Diane P.
This manual for social agency personnel provides specific guidelines on the use and interpretation of an interview questionnaire to be used in the selection of foster parents for children aged 6-12. The 81-item questionnaire, designed for use with applicant families early in the home evaluation process, includes questions about child rearing attitudes and family background. Included in the manual are: a copy of the interview questionnaire; general suggestions about interviewing prospective foster parents; detailed information on how each answer is to be analyzed and coded; additional information which might be considered in placing a foster child into a particular home; a summary form for use in summarizing interviews and additional information; and verbatim answers given by one couple to the selected interview questions, along with the way each was coded.
