Most events planned for the 2nd quarter of 2020 are cancelled due to the travel and meeting restrictions as a result of the Coronavirus outbreak. Please check this information with this location & school to find out more.

This school will run as planned! This online training is not affected by measures related to prevent the spread of the Coronavirus.

Are you ministering to families on a daily basis? Have you done an FMS or FFS and want to deepen your knowledge & skills to work effectively with Families, yet you can’t leave your ministry for 3-5 months to do a UofN school?


With the Online Advanced Family Studies (AFS) you’ll dive deeper into topics like:

  • Genogram & Family Systems
  • Coaching/Mentoring skills
  • Parenting
  • Sexuality & Gender
  • Contemporary Family Issues

…but you’ll do this mostly from your home! All you need is a computer and a good internet connection!

Online & Intensives

This school will be run in an online format with a closing intensive: the opening days will be Online on 8 & 9 July. The intensive is planned for May 3-14 2021 (location in Europe). The 13 modules will take place over the course of 12 months and require self-study, online teaching and Zoom small group meetings. The online modules will become available each month, starting September 2020.

Extension Study Credits & Degree

This school will be registered as 13 seminars with the Extension Studies Center. All modules combined could count towards the third level AFS school (FAM 351), building upon the existing Foundation for Family Studies. We expect you will do outreach and a practicum, details to be confirmed at a later stage.
