Male foster carers continually highlight a number of significant issues affecting their role. There is concern about how best to work with children who have been sexually abused, worries about abuse by carers, and unsubstantiated allegations of abuse in foster care. This course explores the idea of the ‘positive male role model’ to identify ways in which men can be more effective carers. This course is for men only and is facilitated by an experienced male foster carer.
