Safety Overview for Non-CPS Staff
Registration: 8:30 a.m.
DESCRIPTION : The safety of children and youth within their families needs to be a concern for all staff working for, or on behalf of, public agencies. This half day overview will explore Wisconsin’s definitions of when children and youth are safe and when they are unsafe. Participants will be better equipped to understand the significance of behaviors and conditions that may endanger youth and children when they encounter them in the course of their work. Intervention when children and youth are unsafe requires collaboration with child protective services (CPS). This training introduces CPS assessment tools, decision making processes and intervention strategies to enhance participants’ understanding of that system and support mutual work on behalf of children, youth and families.
