Corrections Family Wellness (CFW) Training

“Corrections Family Wellness: For Families of Corrections Staff™” (CFW) instructor Training is a 3-day, 24-hour training, with certification, for instructors to deliver the 5-hour course to adult family members of corrections employees, and the 2-hour course to adult family members of new employees.

The course by the same name, the course Instructor Guide, and the Participant Manual are authored by Caterina Spinaris, Ph.D., LPC.

Stability at home can play a very significant role in corrections employees’ well-being and functioning in both their personal and their professional lives.

The CFW course aims to promote such stability and healthy functioning at home and at work by empowering corrections families to adapt as successfully as possible to demands and stressors of corrections work.

The course is designed to help adult family members understand common stressors that stem from corrections work, and to equip them with effective strategies to reduce the impact of corrections work on home life through increased awareness, empathy, problem-solving, and social support.

Please note: The Instructor Training strictly certifies Instructors to deliver the CFW course to corrections employees’ family members. It does not certify Instructors to train other Instructors to offer the CFW course.
