Protective Factors Small Group Series


Are you ready to bring the Protective Factors to life in your everyday work? Join this 7-week small-group training cohort as we take a deep dive into the practical application of the Strengthening Families framework developed by the Center for the Study of Social Policy (CSSP). Following the Children’s Trust Fund Alliance (CTFA) curriculum, together we will explore each protective factor in detail and identify action items to integrate them into your everyday work.

Learners will:

  • List five protective factors that help keep families strong and prevent child abuse and neglect
  • Identify multiple key strategies and concrete everyday actions that help families build those protective factors
  • Understand what it means to work with families in a strength-based way.
  • Become familiar with the Strengthening Families self assessment and explore ways that it can be used

Who should attend: All staff of family resource center (FRCs), child abuse prevention councils (CAPCs), and other family-serving organizations.
