Mission Statement: The concept of risk and protective factors are at the core of the model. Risk factors are defined as individual or environmental markers that are related to the increased likelihood that a negative outcome will occur.
Protective factors are defined as individual or environmental safeguards that enhance a person's ability to resist stressful life events, risks or hazards and promote adaptation and competence. An important but often overlooked aspect of protective process is that they only operate when a risk factor is present.
Risk and protective factors can exist both within individuals and across various levels of the environment in which they live. Diverse problems can share common risk factors.
Risk factors often co-occur, and when they do, they appear to carry additive and sometimes exponential risks. It is often the accumulation of multiple risks rather than the presence of any single risk factor that leads to negative outcomes.
