Therapy for Children in Foster/Kinship Care
Most children in foster care could benefit from therapy to help them adjust to the losses and changes they are experiencing. It is sometimes up to their foster parents or kinship care providers to advocate that they get these services.
The foster care agency may already have a therapist that they want the child to see or the child may arrive in your home already in therapy. Sometimes, however, foster parents need to be proactive in finding a therapist for their foster child.
