HEALTHY FAMILY DYNAMICS

Creating and maintaining healthy families, while working within the fire service, requires that members understand family dynamics, interpersonal skill-sets and needs, as well as ways to actively support the family structure. Both the firefighter and the family members have unique roles that influence the health of those relationships. To foster them, a person must understand them. This class is designed to empower firefighters to create and maintain healthy family dynamics.
