We are excited to announce the next International Signs of Safety Gathering will be held in Dublin in 2018. Join us in Ireland to hear presentations from child protection practitioners and leaders from across Europe and around the globe. This Gathering will also feature presentations from many Irish practitioners working in Tusla Child and Family Agency who with their leaders will describe their use of the Signs of Safety in the first whole country implementation of the approach.

A five-day Signs of Safety Intensive with Dr Andrew Turnell and Joke Wiggerink. The workshop will begin with a detailed exploration of all the steps of the Signs of Safety safety planning demonstrated through several case examples.

Following this, we will dive into the work of practicing these skills focusing on cases brought by participants. We will work together on one case as a large group and then replicate the same participatory learning process with other cases in small groups.

This residency will explore and unpack the entwined relationships between practice and organisation. All of the training will be grounded in practice and the organisational arrangements that fosters that practice, drawing on the best of UK and international Signs of Safety work. Each day’s programme will also include a short presentation by a local authority demonstrating how the Signs of Safety has improved their practice and organisation.

Viv and Andrew will demonstrate all of the skills and involve attendees in many active learning exercises so participants can practice and develop their own skills.
