Child Safety Conferences: Training for Facilitators

Description: Child Safety Conferences were implemented in Iowa to focus on immediate family safety concerns while supporting the philosophy to keep children and families together. Child Safety Conferences are designed to embrace the family once safety has reached a level of concern where children may be at imminent risk for removal from the family home. The goal is to develop collaborative solutions to allow children and families the opportunity to remain safely together.

This training will provide attendees the opportunity to learn about the history and philosophical beliefs behind the use of Child Safety Conferences and their role as facilitators in the process. Attendees will understand the importance of preparation with the families and collaborative partners to develop a plan to meet the child and family safety needs. 

Trainer: Katie Henniges
