FFI has begun a partnership with the Missouri Children’s Division (CD), supported by Casey Family Programs, to introduce the Five Domains of Wellbeing into the statewide child welfare system and explore ways the framework can help strengthen family engagement and support CD’s efforts to help families make change that lasts. Also this summer, FFI is piloting and adapting its “Critical Moment Reflection” workshops in California for men who use violence in intimate partner relationships and the practitioners who work with them. FFI will assess whether a larger number of workshops could be conducted to generate the types of data gathered in FFI’s project with survivors, and ultimately help explore new practice and policy opportunities. The pilot is supported through a grant from The California Endowment.
On Friday, August 15, FFI and its Greater Boston Full Frame Network will be hosting the area premiere of Rich Hill, followed by a panel discussion. Save the date now, and plan to join us at the Brattle Theater in Cambridge, MA. The screening is at 7:30 p.m. Rich Hill, winner of the 2014 Sundance Film Festival U.S. Grand Jury Prize: Documentary, is powerful film that focuses on three boys and their families in the small town of Rich Hill, MO. While not shying away from the challenges these boys face, the film is “full frame” in its perspective that beautifully illuminates the protagonists’ strengths, hopes, dreams and, above all, their love for their families. Rich Hill is opening in select theaters around the country starting in August; a list of dates and locations can be found on the film’s Facebook page. It will also be available On Demand starting August 5.
