Administering the Colorado Family Support Assessment 2.0 using Motivational Interviewing Skills 2- Day Virtual Training

Our Member Centers work with families in a strength-based way, meaning family development specialists act as coaches and systems navigators to support families as they set and meet their own goals. FRCA offers training in the CFSA 2.0, Standards of Quality for Family Strengthening and Support, Motivational Interviewing and online coaching sessions. These trainings prepare family development workers to successfully conduct this work with families.

FRCA adopted The Standards of Quality for Family Strengthening & Support in 2013. They are the first and only standards in the country to integrate and operationalize the Principles of Family Support Practice with the Strengthening Families Protective Factor Frameworks and its research-based evidence-informed Five Protective Factors. The vision is that their implementation will help ensure that families are supported and strengthened through quality practice. FRCA is the only organization in Colorado trained and authorized to conduct this training.

The Standards are designed to be used by all stakeholders–public departments, foundations, community-based organizations, and parents–across different kinds of Family Strengthening and Family Support programs as a tool for planning, providing, and assessing quality practice. The Standards create common language and expectations in the Family Support and Strengthening field across different kinds of programs, such as Family Resource Centers, home visiting programs, and child development programs.

The certification lasts for two years. To renew the certification thereafter, please attend a recertification training.

Price per attendee: $125
