Family Preservation Strategies for Families in Poverty

About the Course:

Poverty adversely affects many individuals and their families. Previous research has shown that certain attributes and situations serve to moderate the negative effects of poverty. The purpose of this article is to focus on the variables associated with resiliency in poverty, mainly in relation to family preservation. Empirical studies suggest resilient families have adequate support systems, possess an inner locus of control, believe in a higher power, and practice downward comparison. By understanding the attributes and situations that increase resiliency in families, social workers can develop more effective programs and provide supportive assistance to families in poverty. Building resilient and productive families leads to a greater likelihood for family stability and preservation.
