As a part of this course, we will discuss the meaning of positive social connections and the role they play in helping families to be strong, reducing the vulnerability of children. You will also learn about an effective program strategy that can be used to build social connections: facilitating friendships and mutual support. Implementing this strategy will result in everyday actions that intentionally seek to build positive social connections.
