Tweddle Family Partnership Model (FPM) Training

Tweddle Family Partnership Model (FPM) Training


What is the Family Partnership Model?

It is an innovative approach based upon an explicit model of the ‘helping’ process that demonstrates how specific ‘helper’ qualities and skills, when used in partnership, can enable parents and families to overcome their difficulties, build strengths and resilience and fulfill their goals more effectively. Research has demonstrated the positive benefits of this model to the developmental progress of children, parent-child interaction and the psychological functioning of parents, families and children.

The training is highly interactive and takes into account the skills and expertise of participants. Two facilitators work in partnership with participants to explore and challenge their views to enable knowledge and skills to be developed.
