Strengthening Families WV: "Strong Roots and Good Soil" Your Work with Parents, Children & Protective Factors - Workshop, April 28, 2015, Charleston Civic Center

Since the introduction of the Strengthening Families approach, advances in knowledge have deepened our understanding about child development and behavior, developmental impacts of trauma, and pathways to child and family well-being. We now know that families gain what they need to be successful when key protective factors are robust in their lives and communities.

 West Virginia’s new Strengthening Families training is highly interactive and focuses on ways for workers to “enrich the soil” of positive relationships and everyday actions, to build “strong roots” for child and family well-being.

 Learning Goals:

 1.  Early care and education providers will learn about the Strengthening Families Approach and the Five Protective Factors, and why they are important to healthy child development.

 2.  The participant will learn the importance of the role of the Early Care & Education providers in helping families to build the protective factors through simple everyday actions, resulting in stronger families and communities.

 3.  The participant will be equipped to use specific approaches to enhance positive interactions and relationships with parents and caregivers, and to strengthen protective factors in children and families.
