My name is Jason E. Coleman and I am a dedicated 12 therapist for foster children & teens, former case manager, and current doctoral student. Currently I am doing a dissertation study to assist foster parents in managing parental stress related to fostering. My ultimate goal is to help foster parents find additonal strategies to manage stress and to increase retention rates! All responses are anonymous! The link to my survey is included below:
Any foster parent that complete the survey will have the option to enter a raffle for one of two $50 target gift cards. Additionally, you can go to Youtube and type in (PCOM Jason E. Coleman) for more information about my work. Thank you for your asisstance and support!
Please share with anyone you know that is a liscensed foster parent.
