Risk and Safety Assessment 101 June 28, 2022
Assessment is defined as the collection of information to inform decision-making about a child, youth, or family. In child welfare, risk and safety assessments are separate but related processes that are foundational to identifying the issues facing a family, designing a plan, and providing services to support the family in addressing the issues.
Join us for this webinar to:
• Learn the definitions of risk and safety assessment and what the differences are between them
• Understand how safety is managed across the life of a case and how assessments are applied differently in different settings (where there is no open case; an open case with in-home services; and out-of-home care)
• Develop an understanding of common risk/assessment instruments and learn about best practices in completing assessments and using them in conjunction with professional judgment to inform decision-making.
