Child-related dimensions of placement stability in treatment foster care [pdf]Paper  abstract   bibtex   
Identifies 5 dimensions of psychosocial functioning in children entering treatment foster care (TFC) closely associated with placement stability and treatment success. TFC is the special foster care needed for emotionally disturbed children who are put in foster homes. The 5 dimensions are (1) ability to tolerate intimacy, (2) impulsivity, (3) fear of rejection, (4) aggression, and (5) self-esteem. Analysis of these dimensions identifies significant theoretical and empirical support for their relevance to adjustment in TFC. Each of these dimensions reflects early life experiences (e.g., abuse, neglect, insecure early attachments, and inconsistent caregiving) common to children entering TFC. Understanding the etiology of behavioral and emotional difficulties presented by children entering TFC can enable foster parents and caseworkers to develop more appropriate treatment plans.
