This paper describes the demographic data of latency-aged foster children and the reasons for their placement away from birth parents. It also discusses the particular behavior and psychiatric problems that might precipitate referral to a mental health clinic. It then details a program developed to assess and treat those children having minimal involvement of foster or birth parents in their therapy. A consultation/collaboration model theorized by Caplan is applied to the program that developed. A case example is given and the roles of caseworker and mental health clinician are examined.
