What is This Course About?
Choosing values — Learning skills — Building families that thrive!
The Families Course is an initiative of Fusion Australia. In this short course, parents, grandparents, carers and others will develop a picture of the family they want, and will learn skills and strategies to make that happen.
“Raising your children is the most important role you will ever have. You are literally giving them strong foundations for life.”
-Jo Frost (Supernanny)
Research tells us that warm, connected relationships protect children from risky behaviour more than anything else! When young people feel disconnected, their behaviour deteriorates. We can build emotional connection in our families through small interactions every day.
Nurturing relationships provide a safe place to come back to when things go wrong. All children need nurture; they need to know someone is there to care, to listen and to understand their world.
Like a healthy eco-system, a family provides a place of both nurture and structure, where needs are met, and people are strengthened to grow and reach their full potential.
Sallie Hammond, the author of the Families Course came to visit us in St. Albert, Alberta from her home in Australia from April 27 – 29th, 2018. The purpose of her visit was to bring the families course to Canada for the first time. A group of 35 took the course on April 27 – 28 and 17 of those stayed on for the trainers training on April 29th.
Fusion Canada is pleased to announce that we are the care takers and hosts of this course in Canada.Our dream is that this group of trainers will return to their local communities and build teams of people interested in being more effective parents/grandparents/neighbours/friends.
