This class will give participants an understanding of sibling relationships among children in the child welfare system and how these relationships are affected by maltreatment. We will examine the dynamics of sibling relationships and how these dynamics are used when making placement decisions for sibling groups. Foster parents will understand how the outcomes of siblings in child welfare are affected by being placed together or separate, emotional problems that can occur from siblings being separated, and what role the caregiver can play in helping siblings in their care maintain sibling connections.
