How Family Service Providers Can Make A Difference
Strengthening Families™ Georgia is a research-informed approach to increase family strengths, enhance child development, and reduce the likelihood of child abuse and neglect. It is based on engaging families, programs, and communities in building five protective factors:
• Parental resilience
• Social connections
• Knowledge of parenting and child development
• Concrete support in times of need
• Social and emotional competence of children
Using the Strengthening Families framework, Georgia along with more than 30 states are shifting policy and practice to help programs working with children and families focus on protective factors. Georgia applies the Strengthening Families approach in early childhood, child welfare, child abuse prevention, and other child and family serving systems.
