Bringing the Protective Factors to Life in Your Work: Social-Emotional Competence & Concrete Supports

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.

LEARNING GOALS

  • List several characteristics of children who are emotionally healthy and who demonstrate social skills appropriate for their age or environment.
  • Identify what is realistic to expect in terms of social and emotional skills for children at different developmental stages.
  • Recognize how this protective factor can help make child maltreatment less likely to occur.
  • Give examples of how parents and other caregivers can develop strategies that will help children to grow emotionally and socially.
  • Recognize how lack of support, when under stress, can sometimes lead to child maltreatment.
  • Give examples of how workers can provide welcoming, non-threatening support to families.
  • List several ways workers can link to partners in the community to help families in need.
  • Identify the challenges and opportunities culture and tradition present as we try to help families.
