Part of the Family: Achieving Permanence in Long-Term Family Foster Care

Abstract
This presentation will explore research on long-term foster care as a permanence option. It will focus on two contentious practice issues. First there is the extent to which long-term foster children become fully part of the family as intended in the concept of permanence. Secondly there is the question of the role that foster carers in long-term placements need to play as both skilled professionals and committed parents. This presentation will bring together key research findings with reflections on policy, practice and the support needs of long-term foster care placements.
