Get Ready: Reframing Resources for a Range of Topics

January 26, 2017

The goal of the National Reframing Initiative is to build public understanding and support for the broader human service sector. We know through the FrameWorks Institute’s extensive research that the Building Well-Being Narrative achieves this by helping people see the societal benefits of the sector’s collective work across the lifespan, from advocacy and research, to the full range of prevention and intervention programs that human service organizations provide.

In addition to reframing the conversation around human services as a whole, there is a pressing need to more effectively engage the public and policymakers on specific issues and topics within the sector. In a recent newsletter, 7 Reframes for 2017, the FrameWorks Institute highlighted the new reframed narratives and resources that are ready to go for seven key issue areas, all of which are relevant to human services. As is the case with the Building Well-Being Narrative for the human service sector, FrameWorks’ recommendations on the issues included in their newsletter were rigorously tested and proven to be effective at building public support.

We recommend that you check out 7 Reframes for 2017 and bookmark it to refer back to  when you develop messages on the following issues:

  • Affordable housing;
  • Aging;
  • Budget & taxes;
  • Criminal justice;
  • Education;
  • Parenting;
  • And of course, human services.
