Abstract

The Norwegian version of Strengthening Families Programme for Parents and Youth. The programme is dedicated to all families with children aged 10–14 years. Methods used are reflection, discussion and practical training, individually and in groups. Themes are based on resilience theory. Meetings last 2 hours per week for 8 weeks. Some of the meetings are conducted during school hours. All families with children in the same class participate together.

Municipalities are invited to send their public health nurses, social workers or teachers to a free educational course of 2 days to prepare them for instructing the meetings in their local school. More than 60 municipalities in Norway are using the intervention (of 428).

The intervention was first developed in the USA by Karol Kumpfer at the University of Utah and Virginia Molgaard at Iowa State University. SFP is the title of the group of programmes based on the K. Kumpfer’s concept (it includes several programmes for various age groups). SFP 10-14 is one of these programmes and it is known under this specific abbreviation.
