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.

COURSE OBJECTIVES:Participants will be able to:

  • Describe their role in child safety in families and how their role intersects with child protective services

  • Explain, on a basic level, Wisconsin’s definitions for the terms: safe, unsafe, present danger threat, impending danger threat and parental protective capacities

  • Describe strategies to keep children safe

TARGET AUDIENCE: Juvenile Justice staff and designees for Confirming Safe Environments, including private agency staff. Participants have not attended Safety in Child Protective Services
