Strengthening Families and the

Five Protective Factors

The Strengthening Families approach was developed by The Center for the Study of Social Policy (CSSP) after conducting research on early care and education programs across the country. Starting in 2001, the CSSP began documenting the role early education and care programs can have in the reduction of child abuse and neglect. As a result of this study, a new framework and approach to the prevention of abuse and neglect emerged.  The researchers found a positive link between good early childhood education and care programs and the reduction of abuse and neglect. This training will include a history of the Strengthening Families Approach, risk and protective factors, strategies to support families, and the early childhood educator self-assessment.
