dc.description.abstract This project posits that adult learning theory be applied to foster parent training programs. Understanding foster parents as adult learners is essential to designing and implementing meaningful training experiences and resources for foster parents facing unique challenges associated with the foster care system and children in care. This project begins with a summary of the challenges faced by foster parents, highlighting the need for meaningful foster parent training. Current training approaches in Alberta and Canada are presented, followed by a literature review on the effectiveness of foster parent training programs. This is followed by an emerging theory of adult learning founded on historical and contemporary conceptualizations. Based on this theory, a framework for foster parent training programs is proposed. This project concludes with a description of how this framework in action will lead to training with relevant content, meaningful delivery, and increased accessibility. en_US
