Program Standards for Treatment Foster Care.
Bryant, Brad; Snodgrass, Robert
This document provides a guide to quality treatment foster care programming for children with special emotional, behavioral, medical or developmental needs. Treatment foster care meets the needs of such children and their families through implementation of home-treatment plans by foster parents who are trained, supervised, and supported by social service agency personnel. After introductory material about the Foster Family-based Treatment Association which developed the standards and a discussion of the need for such standards, the standards are presented in four sections: (1) agency staff (standards address the case supervisor, case worker, and staff training and support); (2) treatment parents (treatment home responsibilities such as treatment planning, record keeping, advocacy, checks and references, punishment, respite, and damages and liability); (3) children, youth and their families (e.g., placement and support services and treatment planning); and (4) program (program statements and program evaluation).
