Bringing Protective Factors to Life in Your Work
Organization Name
Partnership for Children of Cumberland County
Program Type
Program Description

The curriculum consists of seven courses, each designed to be about two hours in length: the introductory course, a course focused on each of the five protective factors (each exploring one or two program strategies) and a final 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. This resource is for anyone who works with children and families, including parents, practitioners and supervisors. At several points, participants have the option to select material that relates to specific areas of work, such as early care and education, child welfare or family support.
