Assessing Child Safety in Afterhours

Horizontal tabs



Participants will get a broad overview of the child safety framework, the safety assessment approach used by Washington State. Critical concepts including safe and unsafe, risk, present danger, safety threats, and global assessment will be reviewed. A particular area of focus is identifying present danger and taking a protective action (or creating a protective action plan) to ensure the danger is effectively managed. We’ll consider how to assessing others’ ability to participate in a protective action plan. Finally we’ll review the importance of documenting the concerns/threats and of communicating the plan.
