This activity book describes strategies for strengthening families drawn from telephone interviews with 1,000 adults in Minnesota, 400 family questionnaires, 12 focus groups with families of various ethnic groups, and five family forums. Nine family strengths are identified and discussed: communication, health, time together, spirituality, support, respect, unity, cultural traditions, and extended sense of family. For each strength, activities are suggested as well as ideas from other families. The booklet closes with worksheets for families to complete to identify their own strengths and hopes and dreams. A list of additional resources is included.
