A foster child is an individual between the ages of birth to 18 years of age that does not have an adult in their lives to take proper care of them. A child can become a foster child at birth if the child’s parents can not care for the child or if the child’s parents are homeless. A child can end up in foster care at any time in their childhood for things like, having a physically abusive parent or a parent who neglects the child’s basic needs. A child can also end up in foster care if their parents get in trouble with the law and have to go to jail. In any of these situations the state
In residential treatments, behavioral therapy could work well with play therapy because the children who stay in a treatment facility might have not of had a perfect childhood and these children might not know how to play. Cognitive behavioral therapy works because it can change the way an individual thinks. When an individual is suicidal, the individual thinks of ways to commit suicide and also thinks that he or she is not worthy of anything to anyone. The individual can feel that he or she would not even be noticed if he or she were gone. Cognitive
Some of the children remained at the institution while others had left and had to be either adopted or restored to their original families. Restored children were less likely to form attachments but adopted children were attached like normal children. However, both groups of ex institutionalised children had problems with peers. These findings suggest that early privation had a negative effect on the ability to form relationships even when given good emotional care. This supports Bowlby's theory of sensitive period.
Why Some Children Slip Through the Cracks For children who do not have the fortune of being raised by their parents, either because of some tragedy or the intervention of the state, there are still options that the child may have a happy and fulfilling upbringing. Children who are given up by their parents, or those who lose their parents by some other tragedy, may be able to find new families who will give them just as much of the love and nurturing that a biological family could. One way that children may find a new family is through adoption. However, adoption is not always possible, and some children may be put into foster care. The foster care system in America is a very valuable resource for children, and may give them options for having a secure upbringing and finding love that they could not have had without it.
Nannies hired through agencies usually have minimal training in caring for young children. The benefits of an in-home care are that it provides a home environment that the child is familiar with. It provides one-on-one care that is more nurturing. The parents do not have to transport the child to and from a facility; the child has less exposure to illness. The disadvantage of this type of care is that if the nanny is sick parents need to come up with a backup plan to care for their child.
Health and Social Care settings: Health and Social care settings are environments where care is delivered to people such as the elderly, the youth and those with disabilities. Examples of such settings include: Residential Care A residential care provides a safe environment for children in a local area. Residential homes are often used by children who can’t live with their parents. This may be due to their parents not being able to financially look after a child or, if the child is thought to be at risk of harm when living with their parents. Residential care homes may are not always a permanent fixture for young people but rather staff will either try and reunite service users with their families if and when it is acceptable or to look at foster/adoption opportunities on behalf of the individual.
Group therapy is beneficial to individuals sharing a similar fear or problem. By attend a group therapy session the individual is able to see that they are not the only person in the situation that they are in. Once trust has been established amongst the group the group tends to give support to each other, offering suggestions and giving comfort to individuals as they go over the difficulties that have brought them to therapy in the first place. This type of therapy is best used in areas such as alcoholism, drug abuse as well as abuse victims. Other areas such as young offenders or ex convicts as well as survivors or victims or a traumatic experience can benefit from group therapy.
We have all experienced this or know how it works in some way whether going through it ourselves or not. Children are the ones who are normally affected the most; they will have to learn to deal with their parent’s divorce at such a young age, affecting them in a positive or negative way. Although, divorce really is not a good thing, sometimes it can be positive such as; children being happy, parents being happy, and allowing them to mature. Parents being separated can be better for the kids because then they do not have to deal with the parents fighting. If they are put in better and stable environments it can affect them in positive ways.
It’s not like going to a rehabilitation program for drugs or alcohol. How can a rehabilitation program help a sex predator from re-offending? When a sex offender enters a rehabilitation program, the program tries to get to the root of the problem. They try to go into the offender mind and help them to remember if they were abused while they were children as well. At times abusers will block out their abuse they may have experienced as a child.
