Crisis is an opportunity for change. When a family is undergoing a very stressful situation such as unemployment, health problems such as AIDS, food, death in the family, housing and finances, it is very difficult to lead a normal life. STRESS CAN CAUSE UNUSUAL BEHAVIORS, such as an excessive use of alcohol or physical power that may result in child abuse and neglect.
Empowerment is a process in which family members begin to understand and use their strength to take charge of life and become less dependent on negative influences. This process needs lots of time. The Family Preservation Program places emphasis on strengths instead of deficits. One example is assuring family members that they are doing the best that they can. By doing this, people are more receptive to change. The power for these changes resides in the family. The family knows best what each member needs. This program will empower the family, assure them of their strengths, and help them identify and focus on those strengths.
