Children in foster care deserve to live normal lives, but how can we balance this with keeping them as safe as possible in an increasingly digital world? In addition to our new publication Fostering in a Digital World: a common sense guide, we have developed this new course.
The Fostering Network and Adoption UK are running a one day conference exploring the complex issues facing a child who has both foetal alcohol spectrum disorder and experienced abuse and neglect in their first childhood home.
Male foster carers continually highlight a number of significant issues affecting their role. There is concern about how best to work with children who have been sexually abused, worries about abuse by carers, and unsubstantiated allegations of abuse in foster care.The course explores the idea of the ‘positive male role model’ to identify ways in which men can be more effective carers. This course is for men only and is facilitated by an experienced male foster carer.
