SUPPORT GROUP AND COACHING USE

SUPPORT GROUP AND COACHING USE

Family Road Map is an interactive curriculum that uses games, teamwork and teach-to-learn methods to help parents/caregivers practice family-tested strategies for navigating child and adolescent service systems.  This flexible, interactive curriculum is built with six one-hour components that can be used in a classroom or short course setting, as part of support group programming, or in individual coaching as a resource to enhance case management and peer support.  Family-driven and culturally adaptable, the curriculum is ideal for use with Wraparound clients.

The class is taught by Family Road Map’s National Learning Collaborative of Certified Facilitators and Trainers working within agencies, family organizations, and System of Care communities nationwide. The entry-level certification, Facilitator, requires 9 hours of instruction and is open to both peer advocates and provider staff.   Learn more about Facilitator Training.

The Family Road Map handbook is the text for this class, which covers knowledge and skills for working with doctors, schools, insurers, and social agencies.  It is structured around a five-point Guiding Star that keeps families oriented, no matter which systems they must navigate

 (The Spanish version of the Road Map curriculum, Hoja de Ruta, is available for bilingual trainers. For details, contact Wendy Besmann.)
