Supervising for Safety: Removal Decisions
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 the safety framework helps us make decisions about whether a child needs to be removed from their parent(s). We will also identify the legal and policy requirements that guide removal decisions. You will practice guiding a caseworker in applying the safety framework tools in their case and making a decision about whether a child needs to be removed from their home. We will focus in particular on gathering questions, and on how to support caseworkers in obtaining sufficient, relevant information before we make an assessment of whether a child is safe. Lastly, you’ll consider how you can better integrate the child safety framework into your supervisory practice when approving or discussing removal decisions.
The “Supervising for Safety” series is mandatory for Area Administrators. This individual webinar is mandatory for CPS/FAR and LD staff.
No Social Work CEUs are currently approved for this course.
