360° Caregiver Self-Appraisal is an initiative that Partnership for Strong Families developed in order to give birth parents a platform to assess their own Caregiver Protective Capacities.
- Caregiver Protective Capacities are personal and caregiving characteristics that specifically can be associated with being protective. Caregiver Protective Capacities are directly related to behavioral, cognitive and emotional characteristics that can be observed, reported and measured.
- Caregiver Protective Capacities cause parents to respond to situations, conditions and people who may create unsafe conditions or situations for their children.
- We have found that we can do a better job at returning children to birth parents when birth parents are able to identify, communicate and demonstrate how their protective capacities are being enhanced as a result of intervention, treatment and services!
- Partnership for Strong Families is looking for interns who would work directly with birth parents towards enhancing caregiver protective capacities that are diminished and are directly related to a child being unsafe.
