This manual provides information on the recruitment, selection and training of foster parents. Part I stresses methods for effectively recruiting and screening foster parents including: defining foster parent roles and responsibilities; targeting groups of potential foster parents; developing recruitment strategies; conducting initial and in-depth screening; and using screening information to assess foster parent training needs. Part II presents a foster parent training course, and suggests guidelines for working with adults in groups (role play, visual aids, discussion techniques). The appendices provide descriptions of five foster parent training curriculums including availability information and references to books, tapes and films relevant to selection and training.
