There are significant benefits to investing in the development of positive relationships between the birth parents and the foster caregivers of a child who is in foster care. Family systems theory gives us a framework for understanding, supporting, or engaging in these relationships that acknowledges the complexity they bring and the relational work they take. Hear from Dr. Elayne Chou, a family therapist who does work in adoption and mental health support for birth families. Learn about our new interactive learning module, which uses family systems theory to develop action plans for supporting these relationships.
