Training Foster Parents to Serve Dependent Children.
Isenstein, Vivian R.; Krasner, William
The Foster Parent Training Project builds on the desire of foster parents to promote the physical, mental and emotional growth of children in their care. Parents are taught to assist in reducing the impact on the children of separation. Classes deal with emotional development, sexual development, lying, emotional disturbance, the issues at each level of development as well as other aspects of fostering. Supervised meetings among foster parents provide skill practice and enhance their competency in the care of children living with them. A special focus of the program is the alerting of foster parents to the many sources of aid in their communities and State. (Excerpts from the Foster Parent Attitude Survey are included. (BN)
