Supervising for Safety: Out of Home Care

The “Supervising for Safety” series comprises three webinars and an eLearning that aim to support supervisors in the understanding and application of assessment tools and integration of these tools into their supervision. 

In this training you will consider how to support your staff in preventing and responding to safety threats in out of home care, and how integrating safety framework tools may help with this process.  We will review a variety of situations, from initial assessment of a prospective caregiver, to issues needing immediate response in a current placement, to low-level concerns that over time impact the quality of care. You will also learn how biases impact our ability to spot serious abuse by out of home or adoptive caregivers. Lastly, you will make plans to integrate strategies into your supervision practice that help ensure that everyone attached to a caregiving setting is gathering sufficient information to identify and respond to concerns early – increasing the chance that we prevent unsafe placements and that we intervene as early as possible when a safety threat does occur.

The “Supervising for Safety” series is mandatory for Area Administrators. This individual webinar is mandatory for CFWS and LD staff.

Target Audience

Child Welfare Supervisors and Area Administrators in both state and Tribal programs are the primary audience. Those who support caseworkers in their decision making in other capacities may also benefit from the course.
