Children's Perception of Family: A Foster Care Context (Poster Session 6)
It is reasonable to assume that children in foster care may have a broader range of family members, i.e., biological, extended, and foster, they draw upon to construct their individual meaning of family. Further, their connections may be influenced by their contact or lack of contact with these family members. The session focuses on the research activities used to elicit data in a study conducted to explore how children in foster care perceive the construct of family.
