Spokes in the Wheel: The Multiple Relationships of Children in Foster Care
Heineman, Toni; Abrams, Kelley; Dicker, Sheryl; Stone, Julie
Zero to Three (J), v25 n6 p27-33 Jul 2005
This article presents a case study of two brothers' protracted journey through the foster care system, and highlights the numerous challenges they face in their ability to form strong, healthy attachments to significant caregivers. Commentary from a clinical supervisor reveals how the professionals who are working with children in foster care are better able to support the children with whom they work when they receive supportive supervision. A lawyer who directs the New York State Judicial Commission on Children emphasizes how the judicial system must also ensure that the needs of young children are placed at the center of decision making in juvenile court cases.
