Safety Decision-Making - Law & Best Practices Webinar

Safety Decision-Making - Law & Best Practices
2/15/2017  12-1pm   Live Webinar

  • “Safe” v. “Unsafe” 
  • Six Areas of Assessment 
  • Safety Plans 
  • Safety and Risk Assessment 

Faculty for this webinar are: 

  • Mark Harris, JD, Pelican Center for Children & Families

Safety Decision Making Training - Live

This course is based upon the American Bar Association publication, “Child Safety: A Guide for Judges and Attorneys” (Guide), written by Therese Roe Lund, MSSW, National Resource Center for Child Protective Services and Jennifer Renne, JD, National Resource Center on Legal and Judicial Issues. A quote from the Introduction of the Guide summarizes both its purpose and the purpose of this course. “Safety planning in the child welfare system is a shared responsibility, but ultimately the court must make critical safety decisions such as whether to remove a child and when to return a child home. Judges rules on these choices every day, but often lack a decision-making structure, which can lead to following agency recommendations without a thorough inquiry. This can lead to an over-removal problem, rubber-stamping agency recommendations without knowing what’s driving the safety decision; or an under-removal problem, leaving children in unsafe conditions, or returning them home prematurely.

Presented by the Pelican Center for Children and Families and LouisianaChildren.org. This is a Louisiana Court Improvement training opportunity. 

Objectives: By the completion of the training, participants will be able to:

* Understand that the Guide is not a new model.

* Understand the purpose of DCFS’ implementation of Advanced Safety Focused Practice.

* Define safe and unsafe child.

* Define threat of danger and risk and distinguish between the two.

* Define child vulnerability and protective capacity and understand the relationship between the two.

* Articulate why information drives decisions about safety.

* Understand what type of information is gathered in DCFS’s six areas of assessment and why the information is important to safety decision making.

* Understand their role in safety decision making.

 

This training has been approved for  6 hours CLE. NASW-LA CEU hours have been applied for. 

 

The speakers will be S. Mark Harris, J.D. with PC and Kim McCain, LCSW with the Department of Children and Families.
