The study presented in the article is an attempt to analyze probable factors predicting psychosocial problems of adolescents living in foster care. It is an important issue for foster care system. Deeper knowledge of the factors and mechanisms predisposing psychosocial adjustment of foster care children could aid to search for better means to improve their adjustment. Literature provides with enough of evidence that certain personality traits as a result of negative experience in early developmental stages have great impact on psychosocial adjustment in adolescence or even adulthood (Fergusson, Lynskey, 1996; van Os, Jones, Lewis, Wadsworth, Murray, 1997; Wadsworth, Kuh, 1997; Werner, 1989; Werner, 1992; Werner, 1997). On the other hand, many researchers stress that certain characteristics of foster care system influence adjustment of children in foster care. However, authors disagree about the direction of such influence some claiming that foster care system acts as a risk factor (Allen, Combs-Orme, McCarter, Grossman, 2000; Bass, Shields, Behrman, 2004; Benedict, Zuravin, Brandt, Abbey, 1994; Chernoff et. all, 1994; Juodraitis, 2004; National Research Council, 1993; Taussing, 2002; Žukauskienė, Leiputė, Malinauskienė, 2001) while others stating that it serves as a source for resilience (Barber, Delfabbro, 2005; Hell, Triselitis, Borland, Lambert, 1996; Simms, Dubowitz, Szilagyi, 2000). Nevertheless some common points can be drawn – advocates of both opinions point that such factors as the clearly stated and followed rules, safety of living environment, positive approach of foster care staff while communicating with children and social support outside of foster home can have positive or negative impact on children’s adjustment.[...]
