Why use it?
How long does it take?
The Family Focus intervention course is professionally endorsed by:
Members of Australian Psychological Society and Occuptational Therapists can accrue Continuing Professional Development (CPD) hours by participating in CPD activities that they determine to be relevant to their individual professional skills, learning plans and goals. These may be self-initiated. CPD activities do not need to be endorsed by the APS or OT Australia.
"Evidence shows programs like Family Focus can break the generational cycle to prevent the onset of mental illness in as many as four out of ten children."
