There is little to no research on the subject of how group psychotherapy serves as an effective intervention for children in foster care. Youth in foster care are an at-risk population, who generally are a more vulnerable group because they’re susceptible to issues such as neglect, abandonment and a predisposition to mental health needs from first generation biological parents.The objective of this study is to measure the effectiveness of group psychotherapy as a therapeutic intervention for children in foster care six to ten years of age. This project will assess the outcomes of a group targeted at providing social skills and support for children in foster care.
