The Family Partnership Model is an innovative approach based upon an explicit model of the helping process that demonstrates how specific helper qualities and skills, when used in partnership, enable parents and families to overcome their difficulties, build strengths and resilience and fulfill their goals more effectively.


The Family Partnership Model is an evidence-based method the effectiveness of which has been demonstrated through a number of research trials.


The Model and associated training help practitioners understand what it really means to work in partnership with families and to develop the skills of working collaboratively.
The Model assumes that the process of helping is essentially an attempt to combine the expertise of parents with that of helpers, and to avoid the pitfalls associated with the imposition of expert knowledge. The development of a genuine and respectful partnership provides the basis for a clearer understanding of strengths and problems of individual families, a better basis for effective problem management and building parental self-efficacy.
