FIGHTING FIRE WITH WATER DVD Devon County Council Fostering Service £17.40

There’s a great deal of attention on Bullying, but the special problems faced by children and young people in care are often overlooked. This film, aimed at foster carers and teachers, puts that right. The film gets its title from one of the mantras of Rob Long, who is one of the contributors. He explains why children in care are so vulnerable - not only to being bullied, but also to becoming bullies themselves. Foster carers relate their personal involvement, while child care and educational professionals outline strategies used. A care leaver also shares her personal feelings of being a victim, and relates how she overcame the bullies with help from her foster carers to emerge with a successful college career, and the promise of a bright future.
