Abstract

Despite consensus that the foster care system can improve service delivery to the children entrusted to it, there is less agreement on appropriate targets for change and intervention strategies. It is argued that one of two formulations of the core problem expressed by the client group receiving foster care services are implicit in the remaining three core problems iden tified as targets for change in the literature. Consequences of the implicit selection of either formulation and related strategies is presented.
