Event description

Description

Contact hours: 3

Long-term foster parents are of great value to foster care agencies, not only because they know “the routine,” but because they have invested themselves and their families’ lives in caring for children who may have come to them from chaotic backgrounds, with unknown futures. For these foster parents there are special issues and problems that are rarely discussed. These issues range from family pressures to society’s misunderstandings and prejudices, and should be acknowledged and dealt with, for the benefit of family, child, and agency.

Course presenter: Maris H. Blechner, M Ed, LCSW is an adoption specialist with many years as an educator in the United States and Canada, also doing hands-on adoption work. She is presently an adjunct instructor at the Silberman School of Social Work at Hunter College in New York City, and does clinical and administrative consultation, as well as keynotes, conference presentations, and national webinars.
