Treatment foster care (TFC) is a family-based alternative to residential, institutional, and group care for children and adolescents displaying significant behavioral, emotional, and mental health problems. This chapter examines the use of TFC in children and adolescents with antisocial and conduct problems. It presents a brief overview of the development of antisocial behavior throughout childhood and adolescence, including a description of antecedents and risk factors at various stages of development. Examples of the use of the TFC model are then discussed, including identification of outcomes targeted for change in treatment. The key parameters of the Oregon TFC model are described. The practical aspects of running a TFC program are also considered.

Keywords:   TFC, children, adolescents, child mental health, intervention, antisocial behavior
