Abstract:

Abstract: The purpose of this study was to examine perceptions of foster parents regarding the effectiveness of the current model of foster care visitation in reducing trauma in foster children in an agency located in Orange County, California. This study used a descriptive, qualitative interview design to obtain in-depth information from twelve current or former foster parents' on their perceptions of foster care visitation procedures. Data was obtained through audio-taping participants and the use of an interview guide containing open-ended questions. Results from the interviews were organized around key sections and themes. Respondents considered that collaboration/rapport building (67%) was an important component to successful visitation. Respondents also cited birth parents coming prepared to visits (67%), parents focusing on the child (67%), and absence of inappropriate parental behaviors (58%) as important contributors. Agencies and county social workers who strive to promote collaboration between biological and foster parents, uphold child-centered visitation and endorse comprehensive preparation for foster parent training, will contribute to reducing the trauma of foster care placement.
