Strengthening Foster Children and Youth

Drawing essential content from TACT2, “Therapeutic Behavior Management for Foster Care” has helped hundreds of foster parents and case workers have a better understanding of the issues driving the behavior of children in foster settings.



TBM/FosterCare helps foster parents respond effectively when their children act out. This extremely practical 8-hour course teaches them to separate deliberate misbehavior from true emotional crisis, and respond accordingly to each type of behavior.  


Understanding trauma. Since a majority of youth in foster care have experienced childhood trauma, TBM/FosterCare helps parents more fully understand the impact of trauma on their children's emotions, behavior, and response to stress. 

Staying calm. Because foster care interventions usually take place in a home setting, it can be hard for parents to maintain a "professional distance." So TBM/FosterCare offers providers and support staff valuable insights into adult anger traps, power struggles, and stay-calm strategies. 

Note: TBM/FosterCare includes verbal skills ONLY.
