In the fall of 2012, the Administration on Children, Youth, and Families (ACYF) awarded a contract to Developmental Services Group, Inc. to develop a protective factors conceptual framework for ACYF programs (which includes the Children's Bureau and the Family and Youth Services Bureau). This Framework will be used to guide strategies to promote protective factors, build resilience, and promote the development of social and emotional well-being across all ACYF populations throughout developmental stages. Critical to the development of this Framework is obtaining feedback from grantees and partners about how the factors might apply specifically to ACYF populations, especially those working in family support and early childhood. This session will be an opportunity for participants to hear about the latest version of the draft Framework and key identified protective factors and to provide feedback and recommendations regarding user-friendly formats and structures for research and practitioner briefs being developed.
