Building Community, Building Hope: 2016/2017 Prevention Resource Guide

This comprehensive guide on preventing child abuse and neglect uses a strength-based framework for protecting children and strengthening families and community networks. Most valuable are the short tip sheets designed for parents in Chapter 5; they build competencies on a wide range of topics and are presented in Spanish as well as English. Other issues addressed include: working with families, building public awareness, identifying and supporting abused children, prevention, and positive parenting. This resource supports resilience.
