The nationally adopted Standards of Quality for Family Strengthening & Support are used by public departments, foundations, networks, community-based organizations and parents as a tool for planning, providing and assessing quality practice. The Standards are based on the Principles of Family Support Practice and the Strengthening Families Framework with its research-based evidence-informed 5 Protective Factors. These Standards establish a common language across different kinds of family programs such as Family Resource Centers, home visiting programs and child development programs.
This 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. Certification in the Standards is the first step in becoming part of the Kansas system of the National Family Support Network, a network of Family Resource Centers and affiliates throughout Kansas who are engaged in working together to provide needed resources for families. KCSL coordinates the Kansas Family Support Network and provides this certification training across the state.
This is a two-day training. You must attend both dates to receive certification.
