Family Psychoeducation / Multi-Family Group Training

This training demonstrates how to support and educate EASA families, and facilitate single- and multi-family groups.

NON-FACILITATORS can watch the Family Psychoed./MFG Overview Webinar on the
Family Psychoed./ MFG Training page and pass the knowledge-check quiz for credit.
