Family Development Credential
The Family Development Credential is an interactive, professional development training for frontline workers and supervisors from public, private and non-profit health and human services systems. The FDC curriculum was developed by the National FDC Program at the University of Connecticut.
Frontline workers earn the FDC by participating in classroom instruction, preparing a portfolio documenting the application of the concepts and skills learned, and passing a standardized exam. The program enables frontline workers to develop skills and competencies to empower families to set and reach their own goals, and to reorient the way services are delivered toward a more family-focused, strengths-based approach.
Supervisors earn the FDC Leadership credential by participating in classroom instruction, which focuses on the principles and practices of empowerment-based leadership, and preparing a portfolio demonstrating the application of skills that they have acquired in training.
