Subject:RE: TFC Eligibility Resources?

I don't know how much is based on empirical research, but the Foster Family Treatment Association, a trade association of foster care providers, may know of states that have developed guidelines for TFC. FFTA contact information: Melissa Cole/Devlin Melissa Cole I believe some states may have used the CANS (child and adolescent needs and strengths) to develop criteria by which to determine if a child is eligible for TFC. I would contact John Lyons. I believe he is now at Chapin Hall. Finally, there was an experts/working meeting held in September 2012 in DC facilitated by Georgetown training institutes and maybe the Children's Bureau about TFC: there were quite a few papers presented and the discussion did focus on empirical evidence for TFC. Unfortunately I can't locate the materials from these two days or the document that resulted from it. Maybe someone on the listserve has done a better job than I of managing their documents.

Oklahoma's child protective system is asking for assistance in developing a better protocol for determining if a child is eligible for therapeutic foster care. I am finding very little empirical research on this topic. Anyone aware of any helpful resources? Thank you, Carisa Carisa C.
