Protective Factors

Protective factors are things that contribute to mental health, and allow a person to be resilient in the face of challenges. Someone with a lot of protective factors—such as strong relationships and healthy coping skills—will be better equipped to overcome life's obstacles.

The Protective Factors worksheet includes both a psychoeducation and an interactive component. The psychoeducation portion describes what protective factors are, along with several practical examples. In the interactive component, your clients will identify their strengths and weaknesses, and then describe how they would like to improve upon their protective factors.

This positive psychology activity is an excellent tool for identifying goals that can later be used in a treatment plan.
