Education, Certifications and Training
The team of group leaders should consist of individuals who have the desire to help families learn, strong personal skills, and an understanding of chemical dependency and recovery. Overall, the team of group leaders should be balanced in terms of gender and ethnicity. CF! 0 Thru 3 Years recommends that one or more of the children’s group leaders has completed at least 12 Early Childhood Development education units.
CF! 0 Thru 3 Years training includes a 2.5-day training program. This includes an initial training that gives an overview of both the CF! and the CF! 0 Thru 3 Years models. After the initial training, participants attend a training specific to the CF! 0 Thru 3 Years modelled by program administrators. This training includes 10 modules specific to CF! 0 Thru 3 Years implementation: five foundational modules about parenting skills, baby cues, reading to children, being a guide for parents, and healthy attachment, as well as five group leadership modules about leading family time, leading children’s small groups, leading parent groups, child development, and self-care. Group leaders also participate in ongoing training and supervision, including weekly 1-hour planning sessions, debriefing sessions, quarterly enrichment sessions, and team building events.
