Risk Factors, Protective Factors and Hope: Horacio Sanchez

Helping students acquire protective factors is critical if educators want to see improved outcomes for kids who are at-risk. Keynoter Horacio Sanchez says “If you have little risk, it takes less to be resilient. But if you have a lot of risk, it takes a lot more protective factors to offset the scale.”

Watch Horacio Sanchez explain how certain protective factors can create an “in-control” feeling for students that can reduce at-risk behaviors.

An expert in student resilience, author and authority on emotional disorders, Horacio Sanchez will keynote the At-Risk & Struggling Students Conference in New York in March.
