Background

My project aims to unravel the intricate layers of abuse within Quebec's foster care system by posing critical questions that delve into the core of the issue. What precisely constitutes abuse, and how can we develop accurate definitions and assessments of its pervasive presence? By approaching these questions holistically, drawing insights from various disciplines such as psychology, sociology, and biology, my project aims to provide a comprehensive understanding of abuse within Quebec's foster care system. Additionally, the visual exploration of this project will be done in a documentary format. I will conduct in-depth interviews with a diverse range of experts in the field of foster care. This will include researchers, social workers, psychologists, and individuals with lived experiences within the system. These interviews will serve as a powerful means to bring nuanced perspectives and real-life insights to the forefront, allowing the audience to connect with the human stories behind the statistics. Through my examination, I aspire to contribute valuable insights that can inform not only a critical analysis of the existing issues but also the development of effective, trauma-informed solutions.
