“Treatment foster care is a relative newcomer to the child welfare scene. This book describes a program that demonstrates how this service, if carefully administered, is one of the more effective models for treating troubled children, youth, and families.” Jake Terpstra – Foster Care Specialist, U.S. Children’s Bureau, Dept. of Health & Human Services The model is particularly useful because it: 1. places the child in the least restrictive setting possible, 2. minimizes the influence of peers with similar problems, 3. comprises a holistic approach that addresses the emotional, social, and educational needs of the child, 4. allows for considerable flexibility in terms of the specific clinical population targeted and the intervention used.
