Event Description

Please join us on September 14, 2023 for a conversation about the Protective Factors and why we use them.

The Protective Factors Survey, 1st Edition – Retrospective (PFS – Retrospective) is a validated survey instrument developed by FRIENDS National Center for Community-Based Child Abuse Prevention (CBCAP) under the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Administration for Children and Families, Children’s Bureau. The survey assesses and compares the Strengthening Families Protective Factors at the time of the survey completion and prior to beginning Circle of Parents participation. The purpose is to assess changes in Protective Factors over the course of a participant’s Circle of Parents participation.

The Strengthening Families Protective Factors assessed in this tool include: 

  • Family functioning and resiliency
  • Social support 
  • Concrete support
  • Nurturing and attachment
  • Child development and knowledge of parenting

According to the Center for the Study of Social Policy, when these Protective Factors are well-established in a family, the likelihood of child abuse and neglect significantly decreases. This research also suggests that these Protective Factors are also promotive factors that actively build family strengths and a family environment that promotes optimal child and youth development.
