A Certification Training on the Standards of Quality for Family Strengthening & Support

The Maricopa Family Support Alliance is offering a full-day certification training on the Standards of Quality for Family Strengthening & Support.  The Standards detail how the 9 Principles of Family Support and the Strengthening Families Approach, with its evidence-informed 5 Protective Factors, can be applied together to enhance your 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.

Topics Covered:

  • Overview of the Premises and Principles of Family Support
  • Overview of the Strengthening Families approach and its 5 Protective Factors
  • Family Centeredness—How can we develop and implement a program that is centered on the needs of families?
  • Family Strengthening—How can we help families to build upon their strengths for achieving success?
  • Embracing Diversity—How can staff and families embrace the many facets of diversity?
  • Community Building—How can programs and families build strong communities?
  • Evaluation—How do we know how well our programs are serving families?

Interested in attending?

  • Participants are encouraged to come as a team of 2 or more people. This may include Executive Directors, Supervisors and Direct Service Staff, as each has a key role to play in implementing the Standards effectively.
  • Participants who complete the full session will receive certificates from the Maricopa Family Support Alliance that are valid for two years.
  • The cost per participant is $50 (includes snacks, coffee and other drinks, lunch and all materials). This cost is subsidized by MFSA—the full cost for this training is $120 per person.
