Moderators in the Czech Republic

About IFFD
 
Family Enrichment activity began in the mid-sixties with the development of support programs for parents based on the case method: a useful way of promoting dialogue about real situations which avoids imposing our own ideas or dismissing other people’s.

After more than 30 years experience of carrying out these courses, the International Federation for Family Development was founded in Orlando (Florida), as a union of non-denominational, non-profit, independent and private Family Enrichment Centers.
 
The headquarters is in Spain, which is where the first courses started and where The Family Watch (IFFD’s think tank) is also located.;

Moderating a course in Poland

IFFD in ten points
 
1. We are a Federation of non-governmental, non-denominational, non-profit, independent and private Family Enrichment centers.
 
2. We work in 65 countries on the 5 continents.
 
3. Our mission is to help families around the world; we do not discriminate by race, color, religion, gender, or country of origin.

4. We firmly believe that raising children is an unavoidable task for parents and deserves support from society.
 
5. In order to put this task into practice, it is not enough to simply want to do it; parents also need to learn how to do it and for that it is important for both parents to be involved in the programs so that each one makes their own contribution at an individual, parental and family level.
 
6. Our programs use the ‘case method’, which promotes dialogue about real situations without imposing our own ideas or dismissing other people’s.

7. The moderators are not teachers, but parents who are experts at facilitating and guiding these debates in small groups.
 
8. The courses are aimed at groups of parents with children who are the same age, and are focused on acquiring appropriate skills for that stage of development.
 
9. We organize regional and worldwide congresses, which reinforce our identity and help us to share knowledge and best practices.

10. For the academic and research tasks, IFFD has created The Family Watch, a think tank committed to carrying out research on family issues and finding solutions to the problems families face today.
