Safety in Child Protective Services
Registration: 8:30 a.m.
PRE-REQUISITE :Pre-service web based Safety Module
DESCRIPTION : Determining whether a child is unsafe and taking action to assure safety is, arguably, the most critical CPS function. The findings of the Child and Family Services Review have, again, confirmed that it is collaborative work with the family and community to provide for the safety of children in their own home or, if necessary, in a placement outside their home. This training addresses concepts, specific knowledge and skills necessary to perform that role. Safety foundation training builds on the content of the Safety Pre-service and completion of the pre-service is required to maximize the benefit from this training. The Curriculum incorporates the Safety Intervention Standards and eWiSACWIS documentation. Participants will walk through each step of the Safety Intervention process considering the information needed for decision making, the analysis process and applying this to case information. Participants will develop an in-home safety plan in groups and will, along with their supervisor, receive detailed feedback on that plan after training.
TARGET AUDIENCE: This course is intended for child protective services staff and other child welfare professionals.
