Protective Factors for Domestic Violence and Child Maltreatment Survivors

A recent Digital Dialog from the Children's Bureau Learning and Coordination Center focuses on the following five protective factors that may help to mitigate co-occurring domestic violence and child maltreatment and how they are related to the Strengthening Families Protective Factors Framework:

  • Social, cultural, and spiritual connections  
  • Safer and more stable conditions   
  • Nurturing parent-child interactions  
  • Resilience and growth mindset  
  • Social and emotional abilities  
The discussion also delves into strategies for how to build protective factors in all domains (the systems/societal, institutional, interpersonal, and individual levels) and new resources for child welfare agencies and service providers as well as adult and child survivors of abuse.
