Risk and Protective Factors
Fact Sheets and Myths
The Fairfield County Youth Behavior Survey is designed to provide information
about behaviors, experiences and other factors, both positive and negative,
that influence the health and well-being of our youth. Risk factors help explain
circumstances that may increase the likelihood of problem or unhealthy
behaviors. (Protective factors or assets can help increase resiliency to problem
behaviors and are believed to buffer youth from risk.) By focusing on protective
factors we foster resiliency; view youth as empowered with strengths rather
than confronted by risks; and encourage nurturing young people to help them
succeed. * Fairfield County High School Seniors
