Wolkoff, Sandra R.
Zero to Three (J), v31 n3 p42-43 Jan 2011
Professionals assigned to address the social and emotional needs of children in foster care have an enormous responsibility not only to understand these needs but to work with the multiple systems of care that converge to make decisions in the best interest of the child. In this essay, the author explores the emotional toll on those professionals and the opportunities they need for support.
