50 Resources

Over the past 15 years, the National Family Preservation Network (NFPN) has developed 50 resources for family-serving agencies.

While all of the resources are available on our website (nfpn.org), that’s a lot of information to digest at one time! So this newsletter will provide you with an overview of these resources, note some new ones that have just been released, and provide links to them so that you can quickly find what you’re looking for. Information is also included on training/technical assistance.

What does NFPN do?

The mission of NFPN is to serve as the primary national voice for the preservation of families. Our mission is achieved through initiatives in the areas of family preservation, reunification, and father-involvement. NFPN offers research-based tools, training, resources, and technical assistance. For more information, visit http://www.nfpn.org/about-nfpn.

New! Assessment Tool Databases
The NCFASGRT Data Entry System Version 1 is now available for the NCFAS-G, NCFAS-G+R, and T/WB assessment tools, as well as the T/WB combined with either the NCFAS-G or NCFAS-G+R. The database has been rebuilt from the ground up to provide better long-term stability and functionality. The new database prints family assessments with comments, provides two new additional reporting features (baseline/strengths and problem areas), and includes instructions for installing the database on a server. The NCFASGRT database is included with a new purchase of an assessment tool training package (English version) from NFPN. Database upgrades are available to current licensed users of the NCFAS-G or NCFAS-G+R. The cost to upgrade is $75.

How about training and technical assistance?

NFPN offers onsite training-of-trainers, most frequently for large agencies and for research projects that use one or more of our resources.

Coming Soon! Onsite training for trauma-informed practice

Please contact NFPN if you are interested in onsite training. NFPN can provide technical assistance by phone/e-mail for any of our resources. Note: We’re looking for partners, especially universities and colleges, to collaborate with in order to offer more online training.
