Confirming Safe Environments 


This training focuses on the process and practice of assuring child safety in unlicensed homes, foster homes, group homes and residential care centers. It examines the process for assuring safety from the point the need for placement is determined through the duration of the placement.

The assessment for confirming and re-confirming the safety of the placement setting for a child is explored including: components of the assessment, information gathering to support thorough assessments and implications of the assessment for child welfare decision making. Placement Danger Threats are a particular focus.
