Child Protection Casework: 2-Video series
One of the more challenging jobs of a social worker is ensuring a child’s safety following in-home violence, and it's best done by including the whole family in the process. These videos take you step-by-step through the process in an accessible and straight-forward way that includes the child’s input.
Dr. Andrew Turnell and his colleague Steve Edwards developed "Signs of Safety" in the 1990s in Australia in order to help social workers in child protection agencies make concrete plans to help all parties in the process know what to look for and how to keep children safe. This video set describes how to effectively engage the entire family in the steps necessary to ensure a child's safety after an incident of violence in the home.
