Therapeutic Foster Care training course

Because of trauma experienced within their biological families, children in foster care are often found to demonstrate sexual, aggressive, abusive, and inappropriate behaviors. These behaviors will typically lead to instability in their foster care placement, as foster parents are often not equipped to manage children who act out. Therapeutic Foster Care is the preferred home based placement for youth with severe emotional and behavioral disorders. Therapeutic foster care is also one of the only evidence-based interventions for children and adolescents who have severe behavioral or medical issues. Therapeutic foster care is the only residential, community-based intervention for foster children that has nationally established standards of care. This course will discuss what therapeutic foster care is, the benefits of therapeutic foster care for children and adolescents with specialized needs, and how the training and support provided to foster parents in this approach helps to stabilize children and adolescents in foster care.
