Why Power Struggles Happen within Foster Homes and How to Address Them – An Interview with Jenn Stout

Many new foster parents note that as they transition youth into their homes, a power struggle dynamic begins to occur. Why does this happen? Foster Care Program Director Jenn Stout offers her thoughts, as well as some ideas on how to address the inevitable power struggles that occur when fostering.

In this short interview segment, we sit with Foster Care Program Director Jenn Stout to ask some of the most common questions and misconceptions about fostering a youth.

Foster Care supports youth of all ages, placing children who may have been removed from their homes due to abuse and neglect into a more positive, favorable and supportive environment. Providing these children with the healing they need with parents who are identified, trained and continually supported by Thompson, the Foster Care program provides long-term and respite care for children re-entering the community. https://youtu.be/vfVcgHnaDRU
