Description

Safe Environment for Every Kid (SEEK) aims to assess and address psychosocial problems to strengthen families, support caregivers, and promote children ages 0 – 5 healthy development. Caregivers complete the Parent Questionnaire before pediatric primary care visits. The questionnaire is used to identify parenting and family risk factors for child maltreatment. SEEK is delivered by primary care professionals (PCPs) using Motivational Interviewing. PCPs and caregivers use the results to develop a plan utilizing the families’ strengths to address the identified risk factors and barriers to engagement. PCPs then refer families to community resources with the help of social workers and mental health professionals. SEEK has materials available in English, Chinese, Italian, Spanish, Swedish, and Vietnamese.
