Introduction to Present Danger and Protective Planning
The 2022 Present Danger & Protective Planning Learning Collaboratives were created as a monthly break-down to expand knowledge in the critical thinking surrounding assessing and making decisions to determine present danger, the options of protective actions, as well as details surrounding the development, creation, and implementation of Protective Plans. Each month, beginning with March, goes in order of the safety decision-making process. The usage of archived videos, worksheets, recorded Zoom facilitated discussions and the Mentimeter used in these sessions are beneficial to expand thinking on an individual or group basis.
Videos vary in length, but all are under 15 minutes for bite-sized learning. The corresponding facilitated discussions (two per month) are one-hour in length. The recordings offer a glimpse into the deeper discussion of each topic and offer questions used to gauge strengths and challenges in practice as well as a collection of ideas and strategies.
Target Audience: This training was intended for CPS professionals; Access, Initial Assessment, and Ongoing staff; who have completed the Pre-Service Safety Module and Safety in Child Protective Services – Present Danger. Supervisors and directors are highly encouraged to use these materials as well.
