Foster Care and Loss

May 23rd 9:15 am - 4:05 pm
    Foster Care and Loss - a One Day Workshop
 
This workshop will explore the unique losses and grief associated with foster care. An overview of
foster care in Ireland will be delivered, alongside a review of current challenges within the system. The relationship between attachment and loss will be explored, with the perspectives of both children in care and the foster carers who care for them being considered. The various situations and challenges that foster carers, as well as their own children, experience in their roles will be explored in the context of ambiguous grief and disenfranchised loss. An exploration of the various supports available will be presented and discussion encouraged on potential solutions for improvements and development of such.
