Engage parents and protect children

Strengthening Families is a researched-based, cost-effective strategy to increase family stability, enhance child development, and reduce child abuse and neglect.

UAMS presents a 6-hour Strengthening Families Seminar for early childhood program directors. First, we share information about the Strengthening Families framework and strategies. Then we guide directors through an online self-assessment and help them create practical action plans.

The seminar is TAPP accredited and helps programs meet Arkansas Better Beginnings standards.
