The Effects of Fostering

About the Course

Fostering will affect all the members of your family in multiple ways - some rewarding, some challenging. Caregivers who find themselves with an awareness of potential challenges and strategies to work through the challenges are better able to support youth and themselves in their foster care journey. This workshop provides ideas and strategies to help both foster caregivers and their permanent children thrive as a foster family together.

Learning Objectives

Participants will:

1) List the potential challenges foster families may face in parenting youth who are separated and placed along with ways to mitigate these challenges

2) Understand the importance of balancing the needs of foster youth with those of permanent youth

3) Know the value of self-care to manage the potential stress of fostering on caregivers
