Initial Assessment (122)
Registration: 8:30 a.m.
PRE-REQUISITE : Initial Assessment pre-service module (web based) - PreService, Safety, Engaging to Build Trusting Relationships and Interviewing in Child Welfare
DESCRIPTION :The Initial Assessment Training is designed to provide a solid foundation for primary assessments. Participants will examine how their work can embody the mission and philosophy unique to initial assessment. Significant time will be dedicated to interviewing strategies for initial assessment, with an emphasis on interviewing children. This training will prepare the worker for more advanced forensic interviewing training. Physical indicators of maltreatment, including slides, are included. The training provides a foundation for initial assessment decision making: safety decision making, maltreatment determination and case opening. The curriculum assumes prior participation in Safety Foundation Training and will incorporate, not teach, safety concepts and standards. The training ends with standards and practice associated with case closure after initial assessment and transfer to ongoing services. While this training incorporates the new Child Protective Services Initial Assessment Standards, it is not specifically Standards training. It does not focus on assessing the impact of the Standards on existing agency practice.
