Code: CWC/19/335 Foster Care: Fostering Changes Under 12's, practical skills, understanding behaviours and strategies to use. (Cancelled)

The Fostering Changes Programme was established in 1999 by the Conduct Disorder, Adoption and Fostering National and Specialist Team at the Maudsley Hospital. Following the increasing request from Foster Carers for more practical solutions to the problems they were experiencing with their Looked After Children to manage behaviour and avoid disruptions.

The Fostering Changes Programme is behaviourally based and derives from research into parenting skills, attachment, educational attainment and the academic progression of looked after children who are in Foster Care. It is flagship course for Foster Carers that provides them with the practical skills in behaviour identification and management that will support the longevity and stability of placements and make a significant difference to a looked after child’s life.

The course is open to all foster carers regardless of their experience and relationship to the children they look after.

This course is aimed for children 12 years and under

This is an 7 week course and all parts should be attended.
