Free text The editor, from the Department of Social Work Studies at the University of Southampton, presents us with a number of articles by different authors on the theme of foster care. In The International Perspective of Foster Care, Clive Sellick reviews the international instruments that give guidance for foster care policy and practice, and an overview of foster care systems as they have developed in various regions of the world. Other articles deal with the health, physical and mental, of fostered children, identity issues, fostering a teenager, fostering siblings, private fostering, men who foster, and training for foster parents.
