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

Sponsored by the Pelican Center for Children & Families

The basic and most important determination judicial and child welfare agency staff make in child in need of care cases is whether a child(ren) is safe. Critical safety decisions are made when removing a child and determining whether a child should return home. However, without a comprehensive decision-making structure and thorough inquiry, decisions can lead to over and under removal, leaving children unsafe or returning them home too quickly. 

This webinar will explore basic definitions and concepts relative to safety decision-making. 

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