Description

How can we work with families most effectively?

What does it mean to be a quality Family Strengthening and Support program?

How can managers, direct service staff, and families work together to develop and sustain quality programs?


This full-day certification training on the Standards of Quality for Family Strengthening & Support details how the Principles of Family Support Practice and the Strengthening Families Approach, with its research-based, evidence-informed 5 Protective Factors, can be applied together to enhance work with families. Whether you are setting up a new program or strengthening an existing one, the Standards provide a blueprint for implementing best practice.

Participants who complete the full session will receive a certificate from the National Family Support Network, valid for two years. Continental breakfast, lunch, and materials are included.
