About the employer
About the employer
Linnea competence center recruits and approves foster homes on behalf of the public child welfare service. We have departments in Vestfold / Buskerud and Vestland / Bergen. All placements with us are reinforced from the start of the placement, ie one of the adults in the family works from home full time with pay.
Our work is rooted in attachment theory. That is, our focus is on helping the child feel safe enough to bond with the adults around them. This requires close follow-up and guidance on our part in all arenas the child travels in. We use research-based tools to understand the child’s signals, such as the Circle of Security (COS-P), Trauma Sensitive Care (TBO) Trygg Base, Theraplay and Marte Meo.
