Strengthening Families™ is a research-based approach to working with families in a way that develops and enhances their strengths as a solution to their challenges. 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; and Social and emotional competence of children.
