Training foster carers in a preventive approach to children who challenge: mixed messages from research
Abstract:Jan Hill-Tout, Andrew Pithouse and Kathy Lowe set out key features of a two-year semi-experimental investigation, completed in April 2001, into the impact of training foster carers in techniques to manage challenging behaviour. The results suggested that training, as designed and delivered in this study, had limited impact on child conduct and carer capacity. However, the training was perceived very positively by foster carers who claimed they put into practice what they had learned and that the training had been useful.
