Introduction to Strengthening Families: Focus on the Protective Factors Framework
November 30, 2021
Strengthening Families™ is a research-informed approach to increase family strengths, enhance child development, and reduce the likelihood of child abuse and neglect. The five Protective Factors at the foundation of Strengthening Families are characteristics that have been shown to make positive outcomes more likely for young children and their families. Join us to learn more about how you can use the Framework to make a difference in the lives of the families you serve.
Protective Factors Framework Series
The Strengthening Families Protective Factors Framework from the Center for the Study of Social Policy distills extensive research in child and family development into a core set of five protective factors that everyone can understand and recognize in their own lives. This framework is the basis for a research-informed approach to strengthening families, enhancing child development, and reducing the likelihood of childhood abuse and neglect. Training on the Protective Factors includes a foundational series for all staff as well as a deeper dive for leaders.
