Family Enrichment Australia (FEA) is a not-for-profit incorporated association which has been conducting parenting courses since 1986. FEA has run numerous Parenting Courses and Marriage Enrichment Weekends in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth and Canberra. In New Zealand courses have been run in Auckland and Hamilton.
FEA is a member of the International Federation for Family Development (IFFD), which holds consultative status with the Economic and Social Council of the United Nations (ECOSOC). IFFD works in 63 countries in all 5 continents helping parents in their role as the primary educators of their children.
FEA is passionate about helping parents discover the richness and joy that family life can bring. We don’t believe that good parenting is about having the right off-the-shelf techniques, but rather in having the skills to solve the problems and challenges that will always be unique to their own situation – nobody else has their children or even their own style. While families may share many similarities with other families, each experience is as unique as the people involved. That’s why we believe that being able to solve problems is most valuable tool parents can have. Family life is often unpredictable, and when parents are open to learning and adapting, they are best placed to succeed in their efforts to raise happy, competent adults, well prepared to face their own futures.
Our programs are designed to give parents this tool, with our specially designed case study method.
