Training Opportunity for Members

Families and Schools Together “Refresher” Training with FAST Inc. on August 13/14

Family Service Canada and Catholic Family Service of Calgary are hosting a Families and Schools Together “Refresher” Training with FAST Inc. on August 13/14 (9-10:30MST).

The F&ST Program is an internationally-acclaimed, parent engagement program that supports the family bonding necessary for children to thrive. By applying research and evidence-based family therapy practices, this program promotes the full potential of every child.

The training sessions are designed for front line service providers and managers who have experience with the Families and Schools Together (F&ST) Program. The objective of the training is to boost service provider knowledge about the rationale behind each evidence-based activity to promote fidelity to the model. The training will also highlight common areas of program drift, effective cultural adaptations, and modifications for delivering the program virtually.

There are just 6 spots available and are offered to all Family Service Canada members at no cost. Please contact Chris Mahoney at Catholic Family Service of Calgary to register: christine.mahoney@cfs-ab.org
