Treatment Foster Care Oregon UK

Treatment Foster Care Oregon UK (TFCO-UK), originally known as Multidimensional Treatment Foster Care, was designed and developed by Dr Patricia Chamberlain and colleagues at the Oregon Social Learning Centre in the USA. This evidence based licensed programme offers an intensive treatment intervention for children between 3-17yrs. Foster carers receive intensive support and training to offer single family placements to enable children and young people to build on their strengths and address the difficulties in every area of their lives.

Based on social learning theory, TFCO-UK delivers intensive support to the child, foster carer and birth family. Children and young people receive skills coaching to help them improve life and relationship skills and problem solving abilities.
