Our vision is two-fold and ambitious
At familylab International (FLI) professional and parents work together to figure out how to transform emotional love and comitment into loving behaviour.
- Through seminars, workshops, symposiums, websites, books, articles and films for parents as well as professional educators we aim to improve the psychosocial health and wellbeing of today’s and tomorrow’s parents and children – i.e. the rich variety of families concerned with creating healthy relationships without violence and abuse of neither adults nor children and youth.
- Through public education, dialogue, formulation of values and information about relevant scientific findings we want to influence not only the way men and women think about and construct families but also the values and behavior of professionals within nurseries, kindergartens and schools in order to create optimal environments for mutual social, emotional, creative and academic learning.
Our vision is families, institutions and societies with much less violence, abuse, addiction and neglect and to inspire and mobilize all existing good will, love and commitment within families, organizations as well as society at large.
familylab is therefore a constantly evolving organization, always focussed on the relationships between people.
We believe there are better ways to raise and educate children than using authoritarian force or democtratic tricks. Instead we embrace relationships based on equal dignity, authenticity, integrity and self-responsibility.
familylab is actively supporting the health and well-being of today's parents/educators and tomorrow's children through a seriies of seminars and workshops. We participate in public debate and policy development with the aim of creating optiomal environment for reciprocal social, emotional and educational learning.
