Family Reunification and Resiliency Training was designed by Dr. Heyman Oo and colleagues. A partnership between Marin Community Clinics and Novato Unified School District developed naturally as both public entities experienced challenges with meeting the needs of children in our community. Participants will learn about and experience one or more lessons from the FUERTE Curriculum; understand community partnerships and initial implementation of a novel, targeted intervention for special populations; and discover initial implementation data outcomes from the Novato Unified School District (NUSD) implementation as well as future scaling up goals. Successes and challenges associated with these items will also be shared with participants.
