Child Abuse Prevention Month is an opportunity to learn about the signs of child abuse and how to prevent it. Awareness color or symbol: Blue, Blue Ribbon, Blue Pinwheels.
The 2023/2024 Prevention Resource Guide recognizes that there are actions we can take as a society and within communities, organizations, and families to address the root causes of child abuse and neglect. The prevention resource guide seeks to highlight the innovative ways that communities around the country are doing purposeful prevention work to help children and families thrive. The protective factors have always been central to the Resource Guide. A protective factors approach focuses on positive ways to engage families by emphasizing their strengths, in addition to identifying areas where they have room to grow with support. Focusing on protective factors helps children, youth, and families build resilience and contributes to positive outcomes.www.childwelfare.gov/pubPDFs/guide_2023.pdf
