The Prevention Resource Guide continues to be grounded in the protective factors that help children, youth, and families build the resilience and skills that increase positive outcomes and decrease their risk of maltreatment.
Building on those foundations, the new edition now focuses on how to overcome barriers and effectively implement these practices.
This year’s guide takes the theme, “Thriving Children and Families: Prevention With Purpose,” and highlights what it can look like when programs and organizations make protective factors the guiding focus.
The Resource Guide looks at what we can do at all levels to prevent child maltreatment. It is through a consistent, holistic approach that addresses the big and small—from systemic inequality and disproportionate representation to the ways families show they love their children—that we can make a real change in the lives of children and families.
Use this guide all year round with schools, after-school programs, community centers, and other organizations in your community.
Share with them the importance of trauma-informed care and how they can incorporate it, or what adverse childhood experiences are and how positive childhood experiences can mitigate poor health outcomes.
