Workshop

Working with Multi-family Groups in Community Settings with Economically-marginalized and Traumatized Families

For community programs to be appealing and effective for families struggling with poverty and social marginalization, families must be engaged as experts who help shape, conduct, and evaluate the program. Multi-family groups are an ideal format for mobilizing families' ability to support one another. You will learn the ten steps of the Collaborative Family Program Development (CFPD) model, used successfully with homeless families, domestic violence survivors, and first-generation immigrant families in New York City.
