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: 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 III: The Seven State Pilot
2 year partnership with states to identify policy
and practice changes needed to take SFI
statewide
Wide latitude on implementation strategies
United by a consistent set of hallmarks for
statewide implementation
Phase III: Hallmarks
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 (CWS) build stronger, mutually
beneficial relationships
Documentation describes key decision points
and provides evidence that the “Hallmarks” are
being achieved
