Protective Factors
Cohort 17.5 CHC/1.7 CEU $25 for “ALL” Sessions
We have partnered with the National Alliance of Children’s Trust and Prevention Funds (Alliance) to offer training to support implementation of the Strengthening Families™ Protective Factors Framework in multiple settings. This curriculum includes new materials on partnering with parents and concrete examples of everyday actions that research has shown to be effective in strengthening families and preventing child abuse and neglect. If you are interested, please join this 7-course cohort where you will complete each course at 2.5 hours. Includes an introduction to the framework, a wrap-up course that moves participants from knowledge to action, real life parent stories that document the power of building protective factors, and a list of resources, references and websites to support each course.
