Event description

Description

Mark your calendars to attend this 4-Day training to prevent child abuse and neglect.

Developed by the Center for the Study of Social Policy (CSSP) over the last date, Strengthening Families is a framework that helps child welfare systems, early education, and other programs work with parents to build the following protective factors:

• Parental resilience
• Social connections
• Concrete support in times of need
• Knowledge of parenting and child development
• Social and emotional competence of children

Protective factors are the strengths and resources that families can draw on when life gets difficult. Taking those good characteristics and building on them is a proven way to strengthen the entire family and thus decrease the likelihood of maltreatment. Each of the protective factors is essential, but most important is what they do together to create strength and stability in families.

The 4 sessions of this training will enable you to dive deep into what we know about the Protective Factors, what we can do to help build them in our own lives, and how we can use them in our work as partners with the children and families we serve every day.
