    • Abstract:
      Summary: This article explores the values, knowledge, policy and practice of three different programs of foster care in Israel and their implications for the experiences of all involved: children, parents, foster parents and social workers. Findings: An innovative methodology is used, whereby social work students collect data. Analysis of this qualitative data collected through semi-structured interviews clarifies the issues that are of major concern for foster children, parents, foster parents and foster workers. A connection is made between the service models that support detached, complementary or reciprocal relations and experiences in care. Applications: The article established the viewpoint that foster care is a creation of a new familial system that needs to deal with issues of power and create reciprocal relations amongst its partners. The conditions necessary for successful care are highlighted. [ABSTRACT FROM AUTHOR]
