This chapter discusses the Family of Friends program. Family of Friends is an innovative program model designed to be implemented in day care centers and other preschool programs to create nurturing and supportive communities among participating families in order to ameliorate factors associated with child abuse and neglect. Its focus is based on the primary prevention concept of building the capacity of parents to cope with the factors in their lives that present risks to adequate parenting.
