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.
What are the most popular resources that NFPN offers?
1. Assessment Tools that Measure Family Functioning
Over 800 agencies in the USA and 20 other countries use these assessment tools:
New! Trauma/Post-Trauma Well-Being Tool and Training Package (T/WB)
New! Two Spanish Version Assessment Tools : NCFAS-G+R and T/WB
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.
