The concept of family perceptions of children who were fostered

Gardner, Isabel Helen, helengardner@latrobe.edu.au January 1996 (has links)
This project investigated the subjective perceptions of family reported by people who have experienced long-term foster care. Foster care involves removal from their biological family of children deemed to be in need of care, and their placement in alternative homes. Foster children may spend varying amounts of time in care, and may have multiple caretakers. The research began with three broad questions: Who do people who have experienced long-term foster care think of as their family? How close do they feel to them? How would they like their family to be? Two exploratory studies were conducted. In Study 1, 43 children in long-term family foster care (CFFC participants) aged between 8 and 15, who had been in care for more than one year, and 42 matched controls, completed the Kvebaek Family Sculpture Technique (KFST). They chose figures to represent family members and placed them on a chess board, using the squares to indicate emotional closeness or distance from each figure. A representation of their �ideal� family was also obtained. Most CFFC participants nominated their foster family as their family, and few changed their ideal representation. In Study 2, 39 adults aged between 19 and 65 (AFCC participants), who had been in either family foster care or cottage homes for at least one year, and a comparison group of 39 matched controls, completed the KFST according to perceptions of family now, as children, and an ideal family. An in-depth, semi structured interview on perceptions of family followed. For the majority of AFCC participants, connections to foster family when they were children had dissipated over time. Nevertheless, about half of the AFCC participants were still strongly and positively attached to one set of foster parents. The major determinant of attachment to foster parents appeared to be a nurturing environment, while a non-nurturing environment was the most prominent feature of failure to attach to foster parents. Visiting by biological parents contributed to continued attachment to them, however, relationships with biological parents were reported as ambivalent, distant, and unsupportive. Foster care participants appeared similar to those in other studies, however, the two samples were small, and may not be representative in terms of ideas about family membership. Caution is necessary in any attempt to generalise from the findings to a wider foster care population. Implications for theory, policy, and clinical applications are discussed, and suggestions made for further research.

Child and adolescent functional assessment scale : predicting foster care placement outcomes

Grenier, Jennifer. January 2006 (has links)
This study explored whether the Child and Adolescent Functional Assessment Scale (CAFAS) scores of children in the care of Family and Children's Services of Renfrew County might predict foster placement outcomes. A file review was completed for 268 children, all of whom had at least one set of CAFAS scores completed, to obtain data regarding the number and types of placements they experienced. Placement categories were ranked -- in order from best alternate care option to least-desired -- by 11 agency employees. These rankings were used to calculate total weighted placements for each child as a measure of the child's foster placement experience. In regression analyses, including age, gender, and reasons for placement, CAFAS scores were found to be the most significant predictor of the number and nature of placements experienced by a child. This relationship suggests that there might be value in using CAFAS as a placement matching tool in a child welfare setting.
