(I) definitely found this course invaluable. I cannot imagine going into foster care without a course like this -- the parenting approaches need to be so different than old-school strategies that might actually further damage the kiddos! I love the Review handout for guiding us along when a new placement arrives... I plan to use this form as a communication tool with caseworkers as well, and see whether they'd also appreciate it.
