Socio-emotional Competency

Go back to main Prevent Maltreatment page >

Children’s social-emotional competency is considered a protective factor for child maltreatment. When children struggle with emotional regulation, it places stress on the parent-child relationship; when parents and children get support to deal with those issues, children and families are more likely to thrive.

The Wisconsin Alliance for Infant Mental Health: Wisconsin Alliance for Infant Mental Health (WI-AIMH) promotes the healthy social and emotional development of Wisconsin children from birth through age 5.

The Center on the Social Emotional Foundations of Early Learning: Located at Vanderbilt University, the CSEFEL is currently working to promote the social emotional development of young children to age 5.

Partners for Our Children: Partners for Our Children brings evidence to improve child welfare policy and practice to strengthen vulnerable children and families. Based in Washington State, Partners for Our Children identify critical issues facing children in state care.
