Sessions will cover strategies for assessing safety, conducting comprehensive assessment of parents, collaborating across systems for families with co-occurring issues, and using data effectively. Engaging presentations will feature insights from national subject matter experts, child welfare professionals and partners, parents, and youth. Two sessions are tailored for managers and administrators, and two are designed for frontline workers. Each session includes presentations and a virtual reflection activity to help you apply presentation concepts to your daily work. This skills seminar focuses on how protective capacities and protective factors can be used together to build a continuum of practice that extends from safety to strength building. National experts and State representatives will provide insights on applying both approaches to enhance assessment, family engagement, case planning, and collaboration between child welfare agencies and community partners
