Therapeutic Strategies to Support Children in Foster Care

Webinar Length (Hours):



Lori Benson Adams, MEd


Therapeutic Strategies to Support Children in Foster Care

Approximately 500,000 children are in the U.S. foster care system with approximately half of those children living in nonrelative placements. These children are among our most vulnerable, having experienced loss, neglect, and/or abuse. These statistics indicate that virtually every therapist will encounter the unique needs of these children. This 90-minute webinar addresses the current state of foster care in the United States and how therapists can identify and address their unique needs including frequent school changes, inconsistent educational, and therapeutic intervention, and disruptions in bonding and social connections. Participants become aware of common challenges within the foster care system and how to become actively involved in advocating and supporting all children.

Learning Outcomes

  1. Identify common challenges facing children in foster care.
  2. List disrupted bonding cycles and how they impact growth and development.
  3. State specific rights and channels for advocating for the foster children on your caseload.
