About the event

Empowering Families, Protecting Children through Advocacy and Awareness: A Public Webinar Series

Louisiana CASA is excited to host our third webinar series. This series is brought to you in partnership with the Louisiana Children's Trust Fund so we are required to ask participants certain demographic questions during registration. Once you register, an email will be sent to you that includes the link to join the webinar. We hope to see you there!

The Power of Protective Factors 

Communities actively providing prevention services and support are our best hope for preventing child abuse and neglect and improving the lives of children and families. Protective factors can serve as a helpful framework for supporting stressed and vulnerable families. This presentation will help participants better understand the importance of protective factors in building parental capacities and will offer vital resources that help service providers engage caregivers in personalized conversations about the protective factors. The webinar will also provide practical tips and resources for individuals and communities on how to promote protective factors in their own lives and in the lives of those around them.
