DESCRIPTION : Working with families during the initial phases of developing a Protective Plan can be a very difficult and trying time for everyone, as it is a crisis point for the family. Collaboration with the family and your supervisor is critically important to ensure the safety of the child (ren) you are working with.

In this workshop, you will be identifying and reviewing the Present Danger Threats definitions in relation to implementing a protective plan. You will examine various protective planning methods and learn the requirements for implementing protective plans. In addition, the documentation and monitoring are also critical pieces to the effectiveness of these plans.
