Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study was to gain knowledge and a picture of how foster parents perceive their task, the role of the placed children and their biological parents.  Even how they perceived their family have been affected by the mandates removal. Consistently showed the most positive experiences with strong ties to the children placed. However, there are experiences of the need for additional guidance, support, education and contact with the client to enhance a sense of competence in the task and prevent collapse. Burnout experienced often based in the placed child's difficulties in integration. That often grounded on the biological mother's lack of acceptance of the placement in the foster home. Aggression based on this lack of acceptance experienced by family homes to be something that the mother in the family home had to respond. By contrast, more children in the family home were something that the family home learns was positive and facilitated the integration of the placement. Furthermore, accountability of the role of foster parents experienced greater than accountability in the biological role of parents.
