The Sanctuary Model is an evidence-supported intervention (Rivard, Bloom, McCorkle, & Abramovitz, 2005) and the only organizational and clinical intervention recognized as a Promising Practice by the National Child Traumatic Stress Network (National Child Traumatic Stress Network, 2008). Similarly, the Sanctuary Model has achieved a Scientific Rating of 3 (Promising Research Practice) by the California Evidence-Based Clearinghouse for Child Welfare (The California Evidence-Based Clearinghouse for Child Welfare, 2011). More recently, it was awarded the 2011 Council on Accreditation's Innovative Practices award (Council on Accreditation, 2011).

Factors Associated with Foster Parents' Perceptions of Agency Effectiveness in Preparing Them for Their Role

 

We are pleased to present the first peer reviewed article from the Sanctuary Institute. This article, entitled “Factors Associated with Foster Parents’ Perceptions of Agency Effectiveness in Preparing Them for Their Role” is based on work Dr. Nina Esaki, Director of Research, Sanctuary Institute conducted while at the University of Maryland School of Social Work, where she was formerly a Research Assistant Professor. The article provides evidence of the need for agencies to provide support and training of foster parents; a need that can be addressed with the Sanctuary Model.
