2nd International Workshop on the Strengthening Families Program

2nd International Workshop on the Strengthening Families Program.

“Present and future challenges of SFP interventions around the world”.

20th November 2018.

University of the Balearic Islands, Majorca (Spain).

The different SFP interventions around the world face similar challenges: cultural adaptation and fidelity, instruments of evaluation, validation of international adaptations, follow-up analysis, gender issues, incorporation of technologies in the implementation…

This one-day workshop aims at aligning the concerns of SFP researchers and implementers around these subjects. In special, one of the main aims is to reach a “gold standard” of evaluation and to discuss the best instruments for it.

Guest speakers: Karol Kumpfer (Emeritus Prof. University of Utah, USA), John Toumbourou (Professor Deakin University, Australia) and other important well-known scholars (TBA).
