What is Family Life Education?:
Family Life Education is the professional practice of equipping and empowering family members to develop knowledge and skills that enhance well-being and strengthen interpersonal relationships through an educational, preventive, and strengths-based approach.
The skills and knowledge needed for healthy family functioning are widely known:
- strong communication skills
- knowledge of typical human development
- good decision-making skills, positive self-esteem
- healthy interpersonal relationships
The goal of Family Life Education (abbreviated FLE) is to teach these skill and knowledge areas to family members across the lifespan, and foster positive individual and family development so families can function optimally.
Family Life Educators have knowledge based in the discipline of Family Science, and they are employed in a variety of settings and roles. They consider societal issues economics, education, work-family issues, parenting, sexuality, gender, and more within the context of the family. They believe that societal problems like substance abuse, domestic violence, unemployment, debt, and child abuse can be more effectively addressed from a perspective that considers individuals and families as part of larger systems.
Family Life Educators empower families themselves to apply knowledge about healthy family functioning to prevent or minimize problems.
What is a Child Life Specialist?:
Child life specialists are health care professionals who help children and families navigate the process of illness, injury, disability, trauma, or hospitalization. They are an integral part of the health care team, as they provide additional support resources to children and families to help process the often times stressful situation of an illness or injury.
Child life specialists are different from many other health care providers as they focus on the psychosocial needs of the patient, including mental, emotional, and social needs.
