Foster parents often describe their experience as rewarding, although many consider it overwhelming due to challenges of meeting the needs children as well as the demands placed on them by birth parents, child welfare agencies, schools, and other service providers (Armour & Schwab, 2007). In particular, foster parents often describe working with birth parents as one of their biggest challenges. Despite the need for improved relationships between foster parents and birth parents, many foster parents often have an adversarial relationship with the mother and father of the children living in their homes. By improving collaboration between foster parents and birth parents, more families will be able to have successful reunifications and better outcomes while in foster care. This overview of how foster parents can effectively work with biological families will discuss the importance of encouraging collaboration. Also discussed will be how positive relationships between foster parents and birth parents can help to create more positive outcomes for both foster children and birth families.

Failed reunifications are a perpetual problem in child welfare. They can have devastating effects on families and lasting consequences on the wellbeing of children. Reducing the number of failed reunifications and adoptions by stabilizing families is one of the premier challenges of the child welfare system. In order to reduce reentry into foster care, parents need to work closely with case managers, engaging in a combination of preventive programs and after care services. By engaging in long term after care services, parents can improve their own problem solving skills and reduce the possibility of a crisis resulting in a relapse of the conditions that initially brought their children into care. These same long-term services can also help to stabilize adoptions. This overview of recidivism in foster care and adoption will explore the scope of re-entry into foster care and the factors that contribute to children returning to foster care after reunification with their parents. This course will also discuss preventative measures that may reduce the numbers of failed reunifications by providing parents with services and skills that will make them more effective in addressing their needs and the needs of their children.

Foster parents are the primary driving force to ensure that children in foster care achieve permanency. In addition to providing homes for children in care, foster parents provide essential information to case managers about how foster children are functioning in the home, school, and community. Recognition of the importance of foster parents has led many agencies and advocates in the child welfare system to call for increased collaboration with case managers to ensure better outcomes for foster children. However, many foster parents report having poor communication with case managers and feeling undervalued. Through understanding the permanency goals of foster children and knowing what information case managers need, foster parents can both improve communication and become a more active participant in ensuring better outcomes in foster care. This course will overview how foster parents can communicate effectively with case managers, offer suggestions to improve communication and collaboration, and highlight the expectations case managers have when working with foster parents.

An increasing number of youth are experiencing crises which affect their functioning in their homes, their schools, and their communities. A crisis can affect anyone and many types of crises (like natural disasters, divorce, etc.) are universal. There are, however, specific affects that crises have on children and adolescents. In particular, children and adolescents have been found to exhibit a number of behaviors in need of intervention following a crisis. Children in crisis are regularly seen in child welfare agencies, and the challenges in addressing their behavior is difficult for both foster parents and service professionals. Crisis intervention strategies provide opportunities for clients to learn new coping skills while addressing a crisis event (Dass-Brailsford, 2007). This overview of intervening in a crisis will discuss what constitutes a crisis and explore different techniques and strategies to intervene in a crisis with children and adolescents.

One of the top challenges child welfare agencies face is preventing turnover and retaining caseworkers. Child welfare agencies experience a turnover rate between 23 and 69 percent of their total workforce each year, with some regions more affected than others. High turnover rates negatively impact the safety, stability, well-being, and permanency of children. Foster care children with more than one worker are 60 percent less likely to achieve permanency within Adoption and Safe Families Act (ASFA) expectation of 15 out of 22 months. They also build emotional attachments to their case workers and experience a loss of trusting relationships when case workers leave. Birth parents and foster parents have also expressed frustration with high case worker turnover, which has been attributed to delays in service referrals as well as addressing problem behaviors. This course will explore burnout in the child welfare field and its impact on families as well as how high turnover and caseloads negatively affect case performance. Lastly, this course will discuss ideas to effectively prevent case worker burnout and turnover.
