Comprehensive efforts of psychologists, neuropsychologists, speech therapists, sensor therapists and other specialists with foster parents, starting with training in the SFP and ending with supporting the family during different child’s growing-up periods. The center conducts group master classes, therapeutic group studies and child-parent trainings, as well as individual consultations with each member of the foster family.
The Center works for all members of foster families and candidates for foster parents. Here they grasp the intricacies of communicating with foster children and master the most advanced methods of work in the family planning area.
Psychologists, neuropsychologists, speech therapists, sensor therapists and other specialists help make a decision on admission of the child to the family, draw up risk and resource diagrams, and train candidates for SFP. For families, group master classes, therapeutic group studies and parent-child training are conducted. There are special classes for children and teenagers, as well as a unique methodology - “Adopting Children” - an SFP analogue, but for kin children.
In addition, the candidates for foster parents participate in the events of the ABC of the Foster Family Club. It is necessary to get into the environment of foster parents and children, to gain experience and support.
This year, we are launching a pilot program “Professionally Oriented Family”. We will prepare and support families, who will temporarily host children until a permanent family is found for them, and who will work with difficult cases. These will be children with health limitations, teenagers with deviant behavior, siblings, etc.
