A study by Pears, Fisher and Bronz (2007) evaluates a program for social-emotional readiness in school for foster children. The goals of the study were to test the feasibility of the intervention by determining if the agency, caseworkers, and foster families would agree to participate, and by examining attendance rates, to obtain preliminary results of intervention effects on social competence and self-regulation (Pears, Fisher, Bronz 2007). For the intervention, 24 foster children attended 2-hrs therapeutic playgroups twice weekly for 7 weeks. Two components of social-emotional development were targeted on the study. The first was social competence involving sharing, initiating and maintaining interactions, cooperating, problem solving and recognizing emotions.
