How are you doing? Evaluation and Adjustment

Competences to be exercised:

  • Reflecting on your learning process.
  • Using your experiences as a foster carer.

Theme of the session: In this training session you are going to look back at your work with the sessions you have completed so far. You will sum up your work and experiences before you continue.

Aims of the session: The goal of the session is to reflect with your instructor and the other foster parents upon what you have learned and achieved in your work, and how you can work even better together.

“This session helped us check the development of each child, to check accept and support in our social network, and how to continue our work. We had some new ideas and adjusted the way we work together”. Foster carer’s statement

Please use 15 minutes (or as much time as needed) for summing up what you worked with between the last session and this one:

•  Did you succeed in doing what you planned?
What was easy to do and what was difficult?
What did you learn from doing what you planned?
What can you do better next time you work between sessions?

Please remember: It is okay if you experienced problems – this is a new way of working, and it takes some exercise and experimenting before it becomes routine.
