Author information

New York University School of Social Work.


This study explores the psychosocial problems and treatment needs of a sample of 50 children who remained in foster care for a period of five years. An attempt was made to rate the quality of treatment received in relation to judgments of treatment needed. The results raise questions about the appropriateness and adequacy of foster care and residential placement for this vulnerable group of children.
