The Center for Applied Urban Research at the University of Nebraska at Omaha is proud to have been the developers of the Nebraska Foster Parent Training Program materials. These materials have received national recognition and have been adopted for foster parent· training by other states as well. Evaluations of the previous CAUR Foster Parent Training Program (May, 1978 and December, 1981) indicated a high degree of acceptance and utilization of the training. With funding provided by Title XX and co-sponsored by the Nebraska Department of Public Welfare and the Center for Applied Urban Research, the Basic Course was continued throughout Nebraska from April, 1982 to April, 1983. Over 500 foster parents and caseworkers were trained during 1982-83.

The following report presents a summary of the delivery plan, the year's activities, and the results of the evaluation of the Basic Course.
