Wisconsin Child Welfare Professional Development System

Present Danger & Protective Planning Learning Collaborative

Introduction to Present Danger and Protective Planning

*Please leave any questions you may have as comments on the video.

Join Erin Nasgovitz in a new learning collaborative to explore aspects of present danger and protective planning. Each month a short video with a worksheet will be posted to the WCWPDS website. The worksheet will ask you to reflect on what you have learned from the video and develop an action plan to put the skills into practice. A one-hour facilitated discussion will be held on the last Tuesday (3:00 pm – 4:00 pm) and Wednesday (8:30 am – 9:30 am) of each month (March – December 2022) to answer questions and gather tips from colleagues. You need only attend one of the sessions. No registration is required.

Target Audience: This training is 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 participate as well.
