Announces a
Training Opportunity to
Strengthen Families
Bringing The Protective
Factors Framework To
Life in Your Work:
A Resource For Action
On the Alliance website at:
www.ctfalliance.org/onlinetraining
This is an important resource for
those working in support of strong
families and communities.
This Exciting Resource is
Provided to You Free of Charge
We encourage you to
determine how it best
supports work you already
have in place or may be
planning.
Please share with others who
may benefit from the training
support it provides.
Why This Training Now?
Given the widespread,
multidisciplinary interest in the
Strengthening Families™ Protective
Factors Framework, it is important that
staff in all areas of work that touch the
lives of families have access to high
quality training that supports their
implementation efforts.
What the Research Says
New Research on
trauma,
neuroscience and
brain development
continues to show
that the building of protective factors will
maximize the potential for healthy child
development and well-being of children,
families and communities.
At the Alliance
The Alliance believes that the
Strengthening Families ™ Protective
Factors Framework:
• Has been revolutionary in providing a valuable
framework across multiple systems
• Is grounded in what the research says about
preventing child abuse and neglect
• Is an important component to efforts across the
country to strengthen families and prevent child
maltreatment
Why Is This So Important?
To Support a Better
Understanding . . .
Of what it means to fully implement
the Framework, the Alliance created
this training and is making it widely
available to any individual or system
representative who sees and
understands the need to link efforts
across multiple areas of work to build
stronger families and communities.

• The Doris Duke Charitable Foundation
• State Children’s Trust and Prevention
Funds
• The Center for the Study of Social Policy
• ZERO TO THREE
• Parents from the Alliance National Parent
Partnership Council
