February 2009Vol. 10, No. 1Sharing Family Strengths Activity Booklet

The Sharing Family Strengths activity booklet is now available from Family & Children's Service (FCS), a nonprofit organization in Minnesota that provides skills training in parenting, anger management, and conflict resolution. Based on FCS's Minnesota Family Strength Project, this booklet was created as a learning tool for families.

After interviewing more than 2,000 families, it was determined that strong families possess the following: communication, health, time together, spirituality, support, respect, unity, cultural traditions, and an extended sense of family. This booklet explores each family strength and provides activities such as a word search and creating a family tree and family crest. Families also can use the booklet to help them identify their own strengths.
