Are you interested in leading a Circle of Parents group?
FamilyWise provides all the training you need to get started and offers successful support groups. Using hands-on activities, discussion, resources, and covering a range of key topics, our training gives you the tools to lead.
Begin by downloading the Circle of Parents Orientation materials and watch the video provided here:
FamilyWise offers quarterly Statewide Networking opportunities to connect with other Circle of Parents contacts, facilitators, and volunteers to enhance your local support groups. Engaging discussions share best practice ideas, troubleshoot problem areas, training needs and/or opportunities, marketing, referral sources, and resources.
FamilyWise also offers quarterly Facilitation Skills Trainings to learn basic skills to begin facilitating your mutual self-help group with confidence. Protective factors are supported naturally through co-learning and empowered leadership.
And an integral part of Circle of Parents is the Establishing a Circle of Parents Children’s Groups Training that provides developmentally appropriate, skill building activities to increase children’s confidence and self-worth. CEUs are available for both trainings. Registration is required and will close one week prior to each training course.
