February 2024Vol. 25, No. 1Video for Parents Presents True Story of Resilience
"Unstoppable," a short, illustrated video from the FRIENDS National Center for Community-Based Child Abuse Prevention (CBCAP), presents a true story about parental resilience and empowerment. The video and associated audio version are part of Sharing the Journey: Voices From the Field, a collection of audio, video, and animated stories that highlight parent and practitioner perspectives on child abuse and neglect prevention. The stories are separated into three categories: Voices of Parent Leaders, Parent Stories on Preventing Child Neglect, and Voices of Parents and Practitioners.
The vignettes cover a variety of topics, such as the protective factors, fatherhood, kinship families, and more. They may be used as tools to increase public awareness; train child welfare staff; and engage parents, service providers, lawmakers, and communities in a dialogue on child abuse and neglect prevention. Below is a sampling of stories:
- "Just Ask" Animated Version
- "The Importance of Connecting Parents to Neglect Prevention Resources"
- "What We’ve Learned Together About Building Partnerships"
FRIENDS National Center for CBCAP supports community-based programs and activities that foster understanding and strengthen families to help reduce child abuse and neglect. Visit the FRIENDS National Center website to learn more.
