Children of Criminal Offenders & Foster Care, I
The Center for Children of Incarcerated Parents
A total of 68 children in long-term foster care with a private child welfare agency were studied. Investigators interviewed children and their foster caregivers, examining child demographics, family configurations, development, school performance, maladaptive behaviors, traumatic experiences, family involvement in the criminal justice system and the foster care experience. Children of criminal offenders were compared to other children in long-term foster care.
