The Role of Psychologists in Addressing the Needs of Young Children in Foster Care
This presentation will focus on the unique needs of young children (ages 0-5 years) and their families who are involved in the child welfare system. About 41% of children in foster care in Indiana are between the ages of 0-5 years. These children are more likely to have physical, developmental, behavioral and mental health problems. Unmet needs and gaps in care are more prominent in poor communities, rural areas, and/or communities of color which often have disparate social determinants of health. Assessment and intervention with this population may include addressing attachment relationships, trauma, development, and the needs of the child's caregivers. An overview of infant and early childhood mental health considerations will be provided as well as a review of evidence-based interventions for young children and families who are in need trauma, behavioral, and developmental supports. The importance of reflective practice and supervision/consultation while doing this work will be highlighted, as well as opportunities to increase awareness of personal biases that may impact our work with this population.

Learning Objectives: 
By completing this program, participants will able to:
1.  summarize the unique needs of young children and their families who are involved in the child welfare system.
2.  list appropriate assessment and evidence-based strategies for this population. 
3.  describe how implicit biases regarding race, culture, and parenting practices impact psychologists' clinical work and therapeutic relationships with families.
