Confirming Safe Environments- Assessing Safety in Out-of-Home Care
Registration: 12:30 p.m.
DESCRIPTION : This curriculum provides staff a half day overview of Confirming Safe Environments and Reconfirming Safe Environments requirements for assessing and assuring safety for children in placement. The training begins by establishing the critical nature of this function, especially in the context of working with children who have experienced trauma. Staff examine how the nature and demands of assessing and assuring safety in placement are different from assessing and assuring safety within the child's family. This is important because Standards are significantly different in these two areas.
The curriculum then establishes the importance of an assessment tool and an overview of the components of Confirming and Reconfirming Safe Environments. The process and requirements of the Standards are reviewed. Placement Danger Threats are new to participants. The curriculum includes an opportunity to examine the Placement Danger Threats, address questions and discuss techniques for gathering information to support this assessment. Lastly, risk management plans are briefly discussed.
TARGET AUDIENCE: This curriculum is appropriate for all levels of experience and all CPS and Child Welfare Staff roles in the agency. It is particularly relevant to direct field staff involved in placing children in out-of-home care including family and group settings. It is also appropriate for designees who will gather information to support assessments and meet with placement providers and children.
