On May 6th, 7th & 8th, IRCO’s Asian Family Center will be sponsoring the 3 Day Nurturing Fathers and Marriage & Parenting Facilitator Training, designed for professionals working with families or dads wanting to be better dads in an accelerated experience….taught by Portland based National Trainer/Consultant Jennifer Moss, MA, MFT.
This workshop is for professionals and laypersons alike who work with fathers, ever had a father or is a father! Mental Health, paraprofessionals, and educators have often said this training has been life changing. This program has been used in prisons, support groups, psychotherapy, parent education and much more.
Jennifer’s style of training entails a hands on experience, reviewing each topic from the core lessons of the Nurturing Fathers and Marriage & Parenting programs. Jennifer walks you through real life examples teaching various NP groups and home visitation, as well as experiencing over two dozen engagement activities with her style of teaching. Although she was trained under both Stephen Bavolek and Mark Perlman directly, Jennifer’s focus is implementation, with a special emphasis on Self-Care and Communication skills. Be prepared to experience music, movement, partner sharing, alongside intense experiential group work and activities, and powerful discussions. This is a trauma informed, strength based, needs based parent education training that is backed by 35 years of research and evidenced based credentials.
This three day specialized professional workshop teaches the philosophy of nurturing fathers and Marriage & Parenting; and how to implement and facilitate these programs, the Adult-Adolescent Parenting Inventory (AAPI) and Nurturing Skills Competency Scale (NSCS). These workshops address hands on skills and experiential exercises to use with parents and their children.
* A certificate of completion will be issued and any trainee that completes the requirements of the 3 day training will be considered facilitator certified and deemed qualified to facilitate either the Nurturing Fathers Program or the Marriage & Parenting Program. ** Prior experience or completion of the Nurturing Parenting core program is highly recommended but not required with this training although some grants or agencies may require core training in conjunction with this training.
The Nurturing Father’s Program specialized workshop teaches the philosophy of nurturing fathering and how to implement and facilitate the Nurturing fathers program, as well as a preview of the Marriage & Parenting Program (an offshoot of the NP curriculum designed for couples)!
