The Five Protective Factors presentation:
9:30 - 11:30am sorry, the morning session has been cancelled
1 - 3pm
Protective factors are conditions that, when present, increase the health and well-being of children and families. These attributes serve as buffers, helping caregivers find resources, support, or coping strategies that allow them to parent effectively, even under stress. Research has shown that the protective factors are linked to a lower incidence of child abuse and neglect. Attend this session to identify strategies to strengthen families who have experienced stress & challenging life situations, and to infuse those strategies into your everyday practice.
Presenter: Mandi Dornfeld, Family Living Educator and Certified Protective Factors Trainer, Winnebago County UW-Extension.
