Core principles and therapeutic objectives for therapy with adoptive and permanent foster families
Abstract:Angie Hart and Barry Luckock provide an organising framework for integrated practice decision-making in specialist therapy with adoptive and permanent foster families. The framework is located in current available insights from theory and evidence from empirical research, personal therapeutic practice and family life. The authors formulate an initial case example and use it to illustrate their approach throughout as it demonstrates the distinctiveness of adoptive and permanent foster family life. The paper then outlines a set of core principles and objectives in relation to which therapy for these families should be planned.
