- InterventionsMTFC-P and TFC. Treatment Foster Care (TFC) is an one year home based intervention to enforce the capacities of the foster parents, create a positive parent child interaction and decrease problem behavior of the child. TFC focuses on children with multiple out of home placements. TFC prepares and supports placements and helps to profile the problems within the foster family. Aim of this treatment is to contribute to more permanent placements and decrease the number of residential placements by guide and support. Multidimensional Treatment Foster Care for Preschoolers is an intensive 24/7 one year program foster for children. This treatment provides intensive help to young children, parents and foster parents. MTFC-P focuses on a positive parent-child interaction, positive support and positive feedback towards the child's behavior. Through this approach behavioral problems will decrease and a strong and safe base for a healthy parent-child relationship will be created.
