For Clinicians: FMF Training

What did you like about the FMF training?

"I loved learning a new intervention that was empirically supported and that I believed would help the clients I serve and their families. I’m a social being so the networking, laughter, and role playing were a big hit with me. I thought the facilitators were great! They made the whole experience fun." -FMF Specialist

Training for clinicians who want to become "FMF Specialists" is available.  Click here to download the FMF Specialist Training Application.

Trainings can be done in Seattle, Washington (Check out the next training date!) or Sarasota, Florida. Training can also be done at your site, where a FMF Program trainer will come to provide intensive five-day training.

Training includes:

  • didactics
  • video
  • roleplay
  • group exercises
  • readings
  • hands-on activities

After training, trainees have access to all FMF materials and understand how to use them. Ongoing phone consultation with an experienced FMF Specialist is offered as a follow-up to help clinicians use the program effectively and with fidelity.
