An increasing number of grandparents find themselves as the primary caregivers for one or more of their grandchildren. While sometimes temporary guardians, about 10% of grandparents will provide care for their grandchildren for at least six months, and many of those will become sole guardians. While grandparents provide kinship care when a child is involved with the child welfare system, many older adults have challenges providing a stable home for the children in their care. Grandparents raising grandchildren either on a temporary or more permanent basis require supportive services for the diverse and often unexpected needs of children in their care. Foster care professionals are the primary source for connecting families with the needed financial, respite, mental health, and other support needs that may arise. This course will explore the data surrounding the increasing numbers of custodial grandparents (older caregivers) in the U.S. and the challenges facing this population. This course will also explore the needs of older caregivers involved with the foster care system and the necessary supports available for them to provide the necessary tools for stabilizing children and adolescents in their homes.

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.

Parental mental illness is one of the most challenging presenting problems to address in the child welfare field. There are specific risks associated with children who live in homes where parents are diagnosed with a mental illness or display symptoms of a mental illness. Children of parents with mental illness experience an increased risk of developmental problems, behavioral problems and emotional problems. Because of poor treatment outcomes and ineffective mental health treatment programs, a significant number of parents with mental illness who are involved with the child welfare system fail to be reunited with their children. Of greater concern than high numbers of failed reunification are the poor outcomes found in foster children who live with parents with mental illness. Creating effective treatment plans for parental mental illness is necessary to identify effective programs and increase collaboration between mental health and child welfare professionals to improve reunification. This course discusses the importance of creating a treatment plan for parental mental illness for families involved in the child welfare systems and takes a detailed look at how mental illness impacts parenting and how to address barriers to creating an effective approach to treatment and reunification.

An estimated 60% to 80% of families known to the child welfare systems have substance abuse problems, with parental substance abuse one of the most difficult presenting problems to treat successfully. Parental substance abuse is associated with higher rates of continued abuse, greater likelihood of out-of-home placement, longer stays in care, and higher rates of termination of parental rights and adoption. In addition, parental substance abuse has high rates of relapse, which presents a challenge due to time limits for family reunification. Successful treatment for parental substance abuse requires a supportive approach with an emphasis on collaboration. This course looks at the challenges of parental substance abuse before discussing how to approach the treatment plan. The importance of documentation and collaboration with substance abuse systems is also discussed.

Children in foster care are more likely to experience adverse childhood experiences, which increases their risk of negative outcomes in childhood and into adulthood. Many of the adverse experiences are highly traumatic and ultimately result in foster care placement. Because trauma is known to result in increased stress, children unable to adapt to the stress will find it more challenging to recover from the traumatic experiences. Challenges of unaddressed trauma in childhood can range from behavioral outbursts to negative impacts in functioning at home and school. As adults, they may continue to experience the negative impact in their relationships and struggle with mental and physical illness. This course explores unaddressed trauma often seen in children in foster care settings and will look at the effects of this unaddressed trauma on children and adolescents. This course will also explore the best treatment approaches to address symptoms related to trauma in youth.
