The College for Family-Life Studies constitutes a project aiming to mobilize primary and secondary prevention in one of the social welfare services in Israel. Within the framework of the college, 240 people have attended a variety of activities, specifically ongoing study groups concerning life cycle issues. The participants in the courses initially included parents affiliated with social welfare agencies and later expanded to unaffiliated individuals. Parenthood comprised the theme of the college's first courses which were conducted by social workers. The curriculum involved theoretical as well as experiential learning. This paper traces the college's rationale and planning, its staff training, the administration of the first study groups, and evaluation considerations.
