May 9 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm


Join facilitators Cindy Reyes & Sean Owens to learn about the Protective Factors that build strong families and how they are important in our lives and the lives of children and families.
About the Protective Factors Framework:

The Strengthening Families approach and protective factors framework is a research-informed, strengths-based approach that prevents child abuse and neglect by focusing on the well-being of all families and helping families identify and build on their own protective factors. The Doris Duke Charitable Foundation funded the original research with the Center for the Study of Social Policy (CSSP) in 2003. The Doris Duke Charitable Foundation also funded the Alliance to engage its network of state children’s trust funds to demonstrate unique and innovative ways to implement the protective factors framework.

The Strengthening Families™ Protective Factor Framework includes the following 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
