Title "I Am Not Alone." Creating a Foster Parent Support Group
Summary

Mandy Taylor, Adoptive Parent and Foster Parent Retention Specialist at Bethany Christian Services in Grand Rapids, MI shares her experience developing a Post-RPC Training Support Group.

Title A Metaphor for Understanding Stress
Summary

Kimberly I. Fielding, EdD, ACSW, shares a metaphor she uses to differentiate the types of stress as they relate to traumatic stress. For example, the first type is positive stress—how it is desirable and motivating. Tolerable stress is about working through the challenges. Toxic stress transitions toward undesirable and counter-motivating stress. It is also differentiated from traumatic stress to assist helping professionals identify and respond in more fine-tuned ways. This podcast includes how to use a common prop—the facilitator’s own hands—to share this important information regarding the types of stress.

Title Building Resilience in Foster Youth
Summary Resilience has become a popular concept, but what defines this quality in foster youth? According to Amnoni Myers, who grew up in the foster care system, and who now counsels foster youth as they transition out of the system, "resilience is knowing when you're falling and knowing how to catch yourself." So when her clients at Family Matters of Greater Washington in D.C. ask for her help, Myers understands they are demonstrating resilience. In this podcast with host J. Brian Houston, PhD, Director of the Disaster and Community Crisis Center at the University of Missouri, she discusses ways in which resource parents can help their foster youth build their own inner resilience. It's important to meet youth where they are, and to empower them to understand their own stories. Resource parents can function as listeners and learners and offer support and opportunities for growth. They can also remind their youth that "none of us makes it here alone," and that resource parents are part of the team to help them thrive and grow.
