Children in the foster care system often deal with trauma due to the situations that require them to leave their biological families. Foster parents deal with the sometimes challenging dynamic of adding another member to the family temporarily, and this can cause tension and stress. If the child has trauma, behavioral issues, or any other mental or physical health issues, that complicates the process of foster care even more.
Available Treatment Options
Therapist interventions for foster families include parent education and skills practice, play therapy techniques to address trauma and emotional and behavioral regulation with children, and even individual therapy for children and parents to address their unique challenges and learn to function more efficiently as a unit.
