2014 Strengthening Families National Leadership Summit - Registration Open

Registration is now open for the 2014 Strengthening Families National Leadership Summit. The summit will be held October 7-8 in Chicago at the historic Drake Hotel on Lake Michigan.

Strengthening Families is a framework developed by the Center for the Study of Social Policy (CSSP) over the last decade to prevent child abuse and neglect. This approach helps child welfare systems, early education and other programs work with parents to build the following protective factors: 
  • Parental resilience
  • Social connections
  • Concrete support in times of need
  • Knowledge of parenting and child development
  • Social and emotional competence of children
The 2014 summit theme - Reaching Deeper, Growing Stronger, Branching Out - acknowledges the continuing growth and development of our Strengthening Families work. The summit will provide opportunities to:
  • Hear about the excitement -- and challenges -- in integrating Strengthening Families in new arenas: housing, health care, and neighborhood revitalization. 
  • Share your experience and expertise while learning from state and national leaders implementing protective factors through home visiting, child welfare, early childhood systems, child abuse prevention and parent and youth leadership.
  • Get the latest information from national leaders about developing a strong evidence base and measuring impact of using a protective factors approach for all our work.
  • Be the first to check out new tools and resources from many sources to support your work, provide training opportunities, and measure impact.
