FRIENDS Protective Factors Survey
A new pre-post evaluation tool for caregivers receiving child maltreatment prevention services is available online. Developed by the FRIENDS National Resource Center for Community-Based Child Abuse Prevention and the University of Kansas Institute for Educational Research and Public Service, the Protective Factors Survey is designed to measure multiple protective factors in five areas, including family functioning/resiliency, social support, concrete support, nurturing and attachment, and knowledge of parenting and child development. Survey results will provide feedback to agencies for continuous improvement and evaluation purposes.
The Protective Factors Survey is available on the FRIENDS website:
