Strengthening Families is a research-informed approach to increase family strengths, enhance child development and reduce the likelihood of child abuse and neglect. It is based on engaging families, programs and communities in building five protective factors:
- Parental resilience
- Social connections
- Knowledge of parenting and child development
- Concrete support in times of need
- Social and emotional competence of children
Attendees will demonstrate a basic understanding of the Strengthening Families/Protective Factors Framework and understand their role in lessening the likelihood of child abuse and neglect and what agencies can do to support children/families. The workshop has the potential to be developed into a series of activities based on the needs of staff, and the presenter will build in to the presentation to obtain feeback from attendees as to next steps.
