This is the second webinar in a three-part series focused on safety and risk assessment in child welfare. This session will outline the foundation of casework practice related to risk and safety assessment, which is rooted in critical thinking and family engagement. The presenter will discuss the importance of moving beyond compliance and checking the boxes when it comes to assessments to using the assessment as one of many tools for decision-making and informing practice. Child protection workers are key to helping families and protecting children, and supervisors play a critical role in this process. This webinar will also explore how workers can make best use of supervision and ask questions and raise concerns that truly assist in understanding and responding to the needs of the family.
