EFFECTS IN ADULTHOOD OF SEPARATIONS AND LONG TERM FOSTER CARE : A FRENCH RESEARCH STUDY

Abstract : Outcomes for adults formerly placed in long term foster care were analysed through a follow-up study in the past. The aim was to measure the effects of adverse childhood experiences when placed in foster families by a minimum of five years' coutinous care in a stable environment . The findings in this paper concentrate on the feelings, aspirations and living situations of a sample of 63 young adults, interviewed at least five years after leaving care. Despite cleary varied outcomes, findins show that a stable care environment, backed up by substantial edicational and psychotherapeutic support can go a long way towards helping children separated from their birth families achieved satisfactory social integration in adulthood.
