Abstract

Date Presented 03/27/20

This study used an interpretive phenomenological analysis approach to examine the lived experiences of primary caregivers of nonkinship foster children. The study specifically addressed facilitators and barriers the parents face when supporting the positive mental health of the foster children in their care. This information will help advance OT initiatives aimed at supporting children and their families involved in the foster-care system.
