Course Description: The Center for the Study of Social Policy (CSSP) introduced its Strengthening Families Approach and Protective Factors Framework™ as a research-informed, strengths-based initiative for preventing child abuse and neglect in families of children from birth to 5 years old. At the foundation of the Strengthening Families approach are five interrelated protective factors that studies show are related to a decreased likelihood of child abuse and neglect, as well as to the promotion of family strengths and optimal child development. The five protective factors are (1) parental resilience, (2) social connections, (3) knowledge of parenting and child development, (4) concrete support in times of need, and (5) social and emotional competence of children.
