This Digital Dialogue from the Child Abuse and Neglect Technical Assistance and Strategic Dissemination Center (CANTASD) introduces the concept of HOPE: Healthy Outcomes from Positive Experiences, and explores a new public health approach that promotes the conditions necessary for those positive experiences that lead to healthy outcomes.
