FRPs: Orientation, Impacts and Foundations

In this three-part webinar series, we’ll explore definitions of the family and family systems, the official frameworks of government funders that we operate within, what makes our services unique, mental health, trauma-informed practice and cultural competency, and how to affect social change through storytelling and capacity building.

Sarah Kift is an educator, seasoned facilitator, podcaster and mother of three young children. She has been working in the fields of social services, mental health and frontline service provision for over 20 years. She has always appreciated the work that Family Places do, both in her personal life and professionally, and is deeply excited to be working with providers across the province who support families, especially in the crucial early years.

An essential and deeply valuable course for all staff and volunteers who work in and manage family resource programs – from the “why” we do what we do to how we can do it better to serve our families through our evidence-based, values-led practices.

Format is online through Zoom, with take-home reflections and resources for further reading. There will be lots of room for experiential learning, discussion and practical scenarios to implement your learning.

Each session will be held from 12:30 PM to 2:30 PM on April 10th, May 8th, and June 5th.

Registration will be capped at 30. Depending on registration numbers, we may need to limit the number per agency.
