Free text Report of BAAF's first European conference (22-24 April 1998) in partnership with Bradford University. " Exchanging Visions provided an opportunity for practitioners, policy-makers and researchers from many European countries to share their knowledge and experiences of key issues surrounding the best practice for children and young people separated from their birth parents. This publication presents a selection of the keynote presentations and workshop papers." Contributions touch on a number of aspects of child placement, including: improving fostering provision - the importance of preparation for fostering which should include realistic expectations from the carers on the relationship to be established with the fostered child; sibling relationships in fostering situations; outcomes of long-term foster placement; racial matching in foster care
