We know that:

*There is no substitute for strong families to ensure that children and youth grow up to be capable adults.
*Children do best when families, friends, residents and organizations work together as partners.
*Families do best when they live in safe, supportive, nurturing communities.
*What is the effect of culture – and a variety of cultures - on these communities, organizations, neighborhoods, the teachers, family workers, friends and all family members?
*How can understanding the specific ways in which culture impacts parenting beliefs and behaviors help us better support families?
*How does your cultural perspective influence your work with families?

What you’ll learn from attending this session:

*A basic understanding of the Protective Factors, with an emphasis on two — Parental Resilience and Social Connections.
*How the Protective Factors strengthen all families and how to apply them in your work.
*The difference between cultural competency and cultural humility.
*The impact of culture while partnering with families.
*Strategies to use the Protective Factors through the lens
