We know that families with children can make great foster families but they face special challenges integrating the new child into their family. This course will cover what foster case worker and child welfare social workers should know about the dynamics of bringing foster children into a home that already has children. We will provide suggestions for you to share with foster families on how to integrate new foster children into the home as seamlessly as possible. Our expert today will be Dr. Eshele Williams, a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, who brings her professional expertise with counseling foster families and her personal experience as being a biological child in a family that fostered many children in her childhood.

  • List 3 possible positive benefits of fostering on children already in the family.
  • List 4 possible challenging issues children in the family might face when foster children join the family.
  • Explain the benefit of preparing children in the family for the realities of fostering.
