The Hartford Department of Families, Children, Youth and Recreation invites you to apply for the Family Development Credential & Training Program (FDC), an 80-hour strengths-based professional development model used across Connecticut and in 18 states nationally. Empowerment Skills for Family Workers was developed at Cornell University in New York. The curriculum has taught many family workers effective ways to help families set and reach their own goals for healthy self-reliance and interdependent relationships with their community. The FDC training also enhances family workers’ ability to strengthen community collaborations, an essential part of their work with families and with each other.
