Safety in Child Protective Services (302)
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 Preservice and completion of the preservice 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.
OUTCOME EVALUATION: The Wisconsin Child Welfare Professional Development System is starting a process to systematically evaluate its training and professional development activities. The Wisconsin Department of Children and Families has contracted with the University of Nebraska-Lincoln’s Center on Children, Families, and the Law to develop an evaluation process for use by the Wisconsin Child Welfare Professional Development System.
One component of the evaluation process is outcome evaluation that will be accomplished via pre and post-tests. The pre-test will be used to measure the knowledge base of the participants prior to exposure to the curriculum. The post-test will be used to measure the gain in knowledge as a result of the training session.
Final preparation is being made to begin pre-post testing for Safety Foundation training in 2012. Prior to the Safety foundation training session you are registered for, you will receive specific information from the NEW Partnership about the pre-post test process. Please contact the NEW Partnership at 920-465-2724 if you have any special testing accommodation needs.
TARGET AUDIENCE: Child welfare, juvenile justice professionals, and after hours staff employed for two years or less and professionals who, with their supervisors, have determined that this foundation course meets their training needs.
