The Therapeutic Parent

A How-To Handbook For Parents Providing Therapeutic Foster Care

Authored by Family Care Network, Inc.
Edition: 1

The THERAPEUTIC PARENT will not only help the beginner foster parent navigate the complex system of foster care, but it will also further develop the skills of more seasoned foster parents. In addition to providing useful information on foster care regulations and the do's and don'ts of foster care parenting, it will also give parents practical approaches to common parenting issues as well as how to best meet the unique needs of a traumatized foster child. The THERAPEUTIC PARENT is a great resource for not only Professional Foster Parents, but also for parents, social workers, educators, case managers, probation officers, therapists and other individuals invested in caring for foster children. This Handbook covers topic areas ranging from becoming a foster parent, understanding regulations and risk management strategies, to how to manage very challenging behaviors, work with treatment teams, transition youth to independence while maintaining a healthy, nurturing home and good self-care.
