At the University of Siegen empirical studies on Foster children, Foster Parents and Foster care in general are very encouraged. In order to provide an effective support for PhD-students who don’t live in the Siegen region, a specific Doctoral Colloquium (three weekends per year) is offered ever since 2008. In this frame projects can be discussed and intensive consultation and support on the project will be offered.
A similar colloquium on family intervention services operates successfully since 2004.
