CT STRIVE Family Mediation
Project STRIVE (Support to Reunite, Involve and Value Each Other) is a psycho-educational intervention for reunifying families and their adolescents who have run away. Developed by Dr. Norweeta Milburn, STRIVE is a evidence-based approach to family mediation developed by ETR (Education, Training and Research), a non-profit with the University of California, Los Angeles.
Front-line service providers for homeless and unstably housed youth and young adults across the state came together for a three-day workshop to be trained in the STRIVE 5-session family mediation model.
