1. Nicoleau, Alicia Marie. Bonding and Psychosocial Adjustment of Youth in Foster Care.

Degree: PhD, Counseling and Family Sciences, 2017, Loma Linda University

Foster families face complex issues that include a history of maltreatment, family disruption, placement instability, behavioral problems, and other adjustment related concerns. Adjusting to these issues presents unique challenges to foster youths and their families. Using family systems theory as the theoretical lens, this study explored the ways in which youth psychosocial adjustment is related to the interactions between foster parents and foster youth in long-term placement as perceived and reported by foster parents. This study utilized a qualitative methodology with a grounded theory approach. Using in-depth interviews, foster parents described their perceptions of how their foster youth cope and adjust in the foster family context. This study has important implications for theory, research, and practice for individuals working with foster youth and their foster families. Advisors/Committee Members: Fox, Curtis A., Oloo, Winetta A., Sealy, Diadrey-Anne, Williams-Reade, Jackie.
