Supporting Foster Children Exposed to Domestic Violence
Connect, a mini-magazine for caregivers, produced by the Family Violence Prevention Fund (FVPF), contains information and resources for foster parents and kin on meeting the needs of children in the child welfare system who have been exposed to domestic violence.
In the current issue, the article "Building Bridges," by Colin W. Morris, discusses the importance of nurturing healthy communication between foster and biological parents for a child's overall well-being. Morris also offers tips for foster parents to help address the challenges that may arise while trying to create an open and supportive environment. This issue also includes information for foster fathers and Parent2Parent, a section of questions and answers by foster parents.
