The Protective Factors Framework

This 7 to 14-hour training on the Protective Factors Framework can be scheduled flexibly (a full-day training, seven sessions, half days, etc.). The Protective Factors are proven to act as a buffer against trauma and hardships. 

 

From Children Trust Fund Alliance: "The Strengthening Families approach and protective factors framework was introduced in 2003 by the Center for the Study of Social Policy (CSSP). It 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 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"

 

"Bringing the Protective Factors Framework to Life In Your Work

Children’s Trust Fund Alliance is pleased to make available a training to support implementation of the Strengthening Families™ Protective Factors Framework in multiple settings. This curriculum includes new materials on partnering with parents and addresses promising strategies to strengthen families. The training is for anyone who works with children and families, including parents, practitioners and supervisors.

Overview

The curriculum consists of seven courses, each designed to be about 2 hours in length. The introductory course provides an overview, followed by each of the five protective factors and ending with a review and reflection course that helps participants move from knowledge to action. The introductory course can serve as a brief, stand-alone Strengthening Families™ 101 training."
