Parenting the Challenging Child. Fostering Families.
Schatz, Mona Struhsaker
This module is part of a training program for foster parents and foster care workers offered at Colorado State University. The module's learning objectives address: (1) the uncertainty in parenting; (2) a range of options for parenting challenging children; (3) the use of complex resource arrangements to meet the multiple needs of challenging children; and (4) the problems of parenting abused children. The module consists of three lectures with accompanying exercises dealing with specific cases. Lecture 1 deals with basic information on challenging children and suggestions for helping them become involved in a healthy family life. Lecture 2 focuses on the parenting of abused children. Lecture 3 concerns the parenting of multiply challenged youth, that is, youth with combinations of physical and emotional handicaps. A seven-page evaluation form for evaluating the module is included. (SAK)
