Protective Factors Conversation Guides

Protective Factors Conversation Guides were created to help service providers engage caregivers in personalized conversations about the protective factors. 

Each set (one for each of the six protective factors) includes a guide for service providers and a worksheet for caregivers. These can be used one-on-one, as part of a structured activity for a larger group, or in in-person or virtual settings.

After a brief introduction about the protective factor, caregivers are encouraged to fill in each worksheet and relate the protective factor to their family's unique circumstances and goals.
