Protective Factors Training
The Strengthening Families Protective Factors Framework™ is an evidence-informed tool for strengthening families and reducing the likelihood of child abuse and neglect. The framework helps professionals work with children and families to promote the optimal development of all children while protecting vulnerable children from maltreatment.
This training is designed for anyone who works with children and families and focuses on concrete ways you can support the building of protective factors in your work. Each month, CalTrin will focus on one Protective Factor. Learners can register for individual trainings that meet their learning needs and their schedule.
WEBINARS AND WORKSHOPS
Sometimes it’s hard to know what you are “getting into” when it comes to virtual training. We want to take the guess work out of finding a training that works with your learning style, your comfort level with online interaction, and your schedule. Each of our monthly Protective Factor trainings will be offered as WEBINAR and as a WORKSHOP. Which one is right for you?
ATTEND THE WEBINAR IF:
- You learn best through listening and watching
- You prefer to keep your camera off (or have constraints that do not allow you to turn your camera on)
- You would rather not participate in breakout room discussion
ATTEND THE WORKSHOP IF:
- You learn best by doing
- You enjoy group discussion; sharing and hearing ideas with others
- You prefer frequent engagement with the presenter and other participants
- You are able and willing to utilize your microphone and camera
