Afterhours Core 3.3 Maltreatment and Placement: Trauma Informed Placements

Afterhour’s staff respond in crises and emergencies – situations that are likely to be traumatic for everyone involved.  In this course, you will consider ways to reduce the traumatic impact of removal from the home and placement into a new care setting.  You will carefully consider how to determine, along with your supervisor, whether a placement with a relative or suitable other is safe and should occur.  In addition, you will learn how to support the success of a placement by reviewing critical forms with a new caregiver, and providing information about the child.

Participants register separately for each part of the module but MUST complete each session within the module in order.  Participants who have not completed 3.1 and 3.2 will not be allowed to participate in 3.3.
