Foster Parents Speak: Crossing Bridges and Fostering Change
The New York State Citizens' CoalitionPhotosynthesis Productions; $50
Family-focused, child-centered services have been shown to help improve the expereince of children in foster care. But this kind of teamwork can be very difficult to develop. How can our society create real partnerships that work for the best interests of the children? Training and education are the keys.
This 23-minute training and recruitment video explores the rewards and challenges of foster parenting through candid interviews with the families who know best.
"An excellent training tool to get foster parents talking about the challenges and joys of working with birthparents. The voices of the foster parents bring reality to all out talk about the value of true partnerships for children."
-MaryLee Allen, Director, Child Welfare Division, Children's Defense Fund
