One-Day Training Opportunity

Strategies is offering a one-day training which highlights five protective factors that help prevent child abuse and neglect while strengthening families and communities. Family strengthening is the new language to describe the field of family support. This evidence-based framework was developed by the Center for the Study of Social Policy based in Washington, D.C.

The Five Protective Factors model focuses on: Parental Resilience, Social Connections, Knowledge of Parenting and Child Development, Concrete Support in Times of Need, and Social and Emotional Competence of Children.

This training is for veteran and new family support workers as well as anyone in a position to nurture children and strengthen families.

Trainings in October and November in Blue Lake, Redding, and Madera.
