The Strengthening Families™ Protective Factors Framework includes five factors that, when robust in families, reduce the risk of child maltreatment. This course, a module of Bringing the Protective Factors to Life, focuses on parental resilience. Resilience, simply defined, means the ability to recover from difficult life experiences. Resilient parents and caregivers have empathy for themselves, as well as others, and are able to maintain a positive attitude, solve problems creatively and take life’s events in stride. This course will equip participants to define and recognize signs of parental resilience, identify actions they can take to help build the resilience of parents with whom they work, share examples of ways to value and support parents and to respond to families in crises. Participants will be encouraged to integrate these concepts into their everyday practice with families.
This Course will evaluate safety and supervision practices based on DPW Regulations. Indoor and outdoor spaces will be evaluated. Practitioners will analyze their supervision skills, identify criteria in supervising children, develop strategies to supervise children. A supervision policy will be assessed. The early learning professional will have the tools necessary to create an Action Plan for supervision.
