Supporting Foster Parents: Caring Voices.
Hudson, Pete; Levasseur, Karen
Child Welfare, v81 n6 p853-77 Nov-Dec 2002
This study used mailed questionnaires to obtain 66 foster parents' views on the supports needed to maintain their caring role. An overarching finding was the need for respect and recognition, manifested in many ways, which appeared to be in short supply. The presence of several ambiguities in the relationships between agency, children in care, and the foster parents was revealed, requiring acknowledgment and discussion between the parties.
