What is Flourishing Families?

Flourishing Families is a curriculum that helps people who work with families teach parents/caregivers about the five Strengthening Families™ Protective Factors and how to build them in their family. The curriculum was designed by five trainers certified to teach the Strengthening Families™ Protective Factors, and reviewed by more than twenty Arizona parents.

The curriculum is designed to be a supplement to your work with families. Using the curriculum’s activities, discussions and handouts, practitioners guide parents to think about how protective factors show up in their lives, and the small and significant steps they can take to strengthen their family’s protective factors.

Flourishing Families is centered on engaging parents in self-reflection. Practitioners will use the curriculum to help parents recognize their thoughts, feelings, perceptions, values, and behaviors so that they can intentionally build their strengths to be the kind of parent that they wish to be.


What can I expect from the practitioner training?

The Flourishing Families Practitioner Certification Training is a 12-hour training that spans the course of three days. Through discussion, modeling, and practice, participants will learn to use the curriculum’s activities and handouts so that they can use these tools in their work with parents/caregivers.

The training will take place on Wednesday, October 28, Thursday, October 29, and Friday, October 30 from 9:00am – 2:00pm each day. There will be a one-hour lunch break from 11:00am – 12:00pm each day. The training will be held virtually. Registrants will be sent the Zoom link for the training after registration closes on October 16. 

In order to register, participants must commit to attending the entire training.
