Training and Consulting
The Arizona Institute for Family Involvement and Innovation offers multiple training opportunities including educational workshops, seminars, and conferences for youth, families, and professionals. Our educational services are based on the belief that when families and System of Care professionals are strengthened, empowered, and connected to the community, they will collectively create a supportive network that will help improve the lives of children with emotional and/or behavioral concerns and their families.
Our peer-delivered Family Education sessions are designed primarily for family members and the System of Care peer workforce. Professionals, such as case managers, are welcome to join and attend these trainings, as an audience composed of families and professionals is conducive to a better understanding and practice of the family-professional partnership.
