Strengthening Family Coping Resources (SFCR)

Strengthening Family Coping Resources (SFCR) is a peer-to-peer program aimed at building resilience during stressful times and is ideal for caregivers of young children ages 0-6. As we contend with the on-going stressors of COVID-19, Resilient Colorado is excited to offer the SFCR program to caregivers of young children. Our hope is this will help increase coping skills and build resilience for children and adults alike.

SFCR relies on natural healing and evidence-based coping resources to provide a behavioral- and skills-based framework for strengthening family processes. If you care for young children in any capacity, we would love to have you join our SFCR group! We believe that caregivers can use SFCR skills to create “positive chain reactions and interactions” with effects that could be seen for many generations to come.

Group name: Resilient Caregivers
Dates: Tuesdays — September 8, September 15, September 22
Where: Online via Zoom — link will be sent a few days before the first meeting
Time: 1:00 PM - 2:30 PM
