Part II offers a brief outline for instruction which includes a list of foster parent competencies and suggestions for teaching strategies to help foster parents develop these competencies. Part III discusses the social and psychological development of infants, providing background information for the instructor. Areas focused on include social development, emotional development, temperamental differences, sense of trust, and dimensions of early maternal care of infants. Part IV provides a set of true/false questions, with answers, for class discussion. Part V lists references and resources, including films, filmstrips, books and pamphlets, which can be used to supplement both the instructor's and the foster parents' study of infant development.
