The Building Prevention video series examines the key elements behind our programmatic work to prevent child abuse and neglect in South Carolina. Each video addresses critical components and strategies that are beneficial in reducing child maltreatment and strengthening prevention efforts in our communities. In this video, Sherri Caldwell, Children’s Trust director of community initiatives, discusses the significance of strengthening families through the application of improved parenting skills, better communications, positive discipline practices, resilience in tough times, and tools to assist children with social skills and relationships.

The other five videos in the series are Partnerships & Collaboration (April 21), The Parent Voice (April 28), Adverse Childhood Experiences (May 5), Positive Parenting in the Community (May 12), and Protective Factors (May 26).
