Neglect, prenatal exposure to drugs/alcohol, emotional or sexual abuse, and domestic violence are among the most common types of maltreatment experienced by children placed in foster care. These experiences often lead to learning, emotional and behavioral difficulties, which require special help in school and at home. Children may have multiple or severe problems which require the help of professionals. Participants will learn how to access community resources, and make household changes to make placement less traumatic. In addition, participants learn parenting strategies that are most appropriate for children with learning, emotional and behavioral challenges.
