Abstract

This article explores the conceptual and practical differences between traditional and therapeutic foster care. Most important is that therapeutic foster care is linked to an emerging philosophy referred to as postmodernism. If this philosophical basis is not understood, the thrust of therapeutic foster care may be seriously misconstrued, and a community-based style of treatment may be destroyed.
