Discovering Your Family’s Strengths: A ParentFurther Webinar Series from Search Institute
Strengths to Make It Through: How Families Can Grow Together through Everyday Challenges . . . and Big StuffEvery family faces challenges, large and small. A key strength in families is to find healthy ways to adapt to challenge and change—and even grow through difficult times. Drawing insights from the American Family Assets Study, this webinar will explore strengths in families that help navigate the ups and downs of life, highlighting family practices that can make a difference. By participating in this webinar, you will learn:
- The power of cultivating strengths to help your family when facing change and challenges, including insightful research on resilience factors in families dealing with high stress.
- Everyday family practices that you can cultivate that will help you grow together—rather than grow apart—in the midst of the difficulties.
- Concrete strategies that people who work with families can use to help them tap their strengths to help them through tough times.
This is the first of a five-part webinar series that examines the practical implications of Search Institute’s framework of Family Assets, or family strengths, based on the American Family Assets Study.
