Safety Planning for Senior Managers Workshop

How safe is the safety planning in your organisation? Good outcomes for children depend on good safety plans. Workers are vulnerable too, if their safety planning is weak. Following the success of this workshop in April 2021, Joke Wiggerink and Terry Murphy are returning with a repeat of this half-day workshop on this critical topic for senior child protection leaders. Joke and Terry will talk from their own experiences of struggles and successes from their time leading a child protection organisation as well as working internationally with agencies implementing the Signs of Safety. The workshop is open to all leaders and senior managers of child protection agencies. Facilitated by Joke Wiggerink and Terry Murphy.
