Course Description: 

Standards of Quality for Family Strengthening & Support Certification Training

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?

The nationally-adopted Standards of Quality for Family Strengthening & Support are used by public departments, foundations, networks, community-based organizations, and parents used as a tool for planning, providing, and assessing quality practice. 

Based on the Principles of Family Support Practice and the Strengthening Families Framework and its research-based evidence-informed 5 Protective Factors, they have created a common language across different kinds of Family Strengthening and Family Support programs such as Family Resource Centers, home visiting programs, and child development programs. 

This virtual certification training details how the Standards can 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 from Programs are highly encouraged to come as teams with Executive Directors, Managers, Coordinators, and Direct Service Staff, as each has a key role to play in implementing the Standards effectively.  Participants who complete the full training and pass the open-book quiz will receive a certificate from the National Family Support Network that is valid for two years. 

The training will begin promptly each day – latecomers will not be admitted.  You must attend all portions of both days of training.
