HIDALGO GARCIA, M.ª Victoria et al. Implementation of the Programa de Formación y Apoyo Familiar (FAF) by Social Services. Escritos de Psicología [online]. 2014, vol.7, n.3, pp.33-41. ISSN 1989-3809.

The Programa de Formación y Apoyo Familiar (Family Education and Support Program) is a psychoeducative and community intervention to promote positive parenting. It is a secondary prevention parent education program for families at psychosocial risk and is applied by the Family Preservation Services. This article describes the program and analyses its application in 34 different groups of parents comprising 152 families. The results suggest that the implementation of the program was characterised by homogeneity and variety, indicating both the structured nature of the program and its flexibility. Moreover, the Programa de Formación y Apoyo Familiar program was regarded positively by both the practitioners and the participating families.
