Five models of foster family group homes; a systematic view of foster care by Elizabeth A Lawder( Book )

5 editions published between 1974 and 1976 in English and held by 271 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The purpose of this monograph is to develop the concept of differentiated foster family care designed to serve a range of children and to describe several foster family models useful in putting this concept into practice. In the first half of the monograph, a discussion of trends in foster parent selection and education is presented. Some criteria for selection and alternative training methods and program content areas are offered. Case studies provide descriptions of populations which often produce children who need foster care. The rest of the monograph is devoted to a description of five model foster care environments which serve the needs of many foster children. Included are: (1) the agency-owned family group home; (2) the agency-rented, family-owned group home; (3) a group home for low-functioning children; (4) the visiting foster home program; and (5) a medical foster home.

A followup study of adoptions : post-placement functioning of adoption families by Elizabeth A Lawder( Book )

10 editions published in 1969 in English and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume reports on the final phase of a research project to study the effects of adoption on parental, child, and family functioning. To provide a background for the study, the development of adoption in the United States and the theory and practice of adoption are discussed. The study asked three questions: (1) How adequately do adoptive couples adjust to the responsibilities of parenthood following completion of adoption? (2) What information about the adoptive parents and children, that can be obtained before the completion of the adoption, is predictive of how the family will later function? And (3) What are the developmental patterns of adopted children? A questionnaire was completed by 556 adoptive families, and 200 of the families were later interviewed. Analysis of the findings was made and these are reported in detail. Case illustrations of adoptive families lend substance and perspective to the reported findings by describing both superior and poor family functioning. A section of the book discusses the implications of the research findings for adoption practices. Appendixes include the questionnaire and interview schedules and analysis of the data. (Dr)
