The Research Behind Strengthening Families The Four Big

The Research Behind Strengthening Families The Four Big Ideas Behind Strengthening Families Building protective and promotive factors, not just reducing risk An approach not a model, a program or a curriculum A changed relationship with parents Aligning practice with developmental science In the beginning, we were seeking a new, strategic, feasible approach to child abuse prevention that would: Be systematic Be implemented nationally Reach large numbers of very young children Have impact long before abuse or neglect

occurred Social-ecological model Society Community/ Programs Family/ Child/ Parents Individual An Evidence-Informed Traditional Approach Evidence-Based Program Model Tested by RCT Implementation w/ Fidelity Strengtheni

ng Families Evidenceinformed Approach = Results Adaptive Practice Distributive Network Adaptive Practice Adaptive Practice Adaptive Practice Results The Knowledge Building Process

Phase 1: Search the evidence to find out what factors really reduce child abuse and neglect Phase 2: Explore the connection between factors that prevent child abuse and neglect and what quality early childhood programs do to build them Phase 3: Learn about policy and practice changes needed to infuse the model statewide through a partnership with 7 pilot states Phase 4: Create a structure for continuous learning with a network of implementing states Phase 5: Support investments in continued research and knowledge development Phase I: Developing the Framework National Advisory Committee Literature review Dialogue sessions Phase I: Literature Review Conducted by the Erikson Institute Review of existing literature to identify which protective factors were correlated with lower rates of child abuse and neglect Served to define not only which protective factors but

some of what we know about how to build them Phase I: Dialogue Sessions Natl. Resource Center for Community Based Family Resources and Support Child Trends Child Welfare League of America Family Support America Free to Grow Natl. Alliance of Childrens Trust and Prevention Funds Natl. Association for the Education of Young Children Natl. Conferences on Child Abuse and Neglect Natl.

MI Phase III: Hallmarks of state implementation More programs use the protective factors framework Parent leadership is demonstrated at all levels Integration of Strengthening Families into Early Care and Education initiatives in many settings is evident Early Care and Education and child welfare services build stronger, mutually beneficial relationships Documentation describes key decision points and provides evidence that the Hallmarks are being achieved Phase IV: Continuous Learning with a National Network Member States and National Partner Organizations Create new tools Test strategies Share their knowledge with others through a learning network

Phase V: Continued Knowledge Building Conducting and supporting research QIC-EC, Youth Thrive, Home Based Child Care Study, A Look at Strengthening Families in the States Intensive knowledge building with states and jurisdictions Child welfare, AIM states, peer working groups Facilitating collection of meaningful data in the field Online tools including Protective Factors Survey, Parents Assessment of Protective Factors We are continuously building knowledge and updating tools and resources.
