The safety and well-being of everyone who attends a Signs of Safety event is always our priority. Due to the outbreak of COVID-19 pandemic and the travel and meeting restrictions that are currently in place throughout the world, we have postponed this event until further notice.

Everyone who has already registered for the event will be receiving communication from us with further details regarding this. Thank you for your understanding, stay healthy, and hope to see you later in the year!

Elia, the organisation behind Signs of Safety, is organising a workshop about leadership in a Signs of Safety implementation.

Elia is excited to see that more and more Flemish organisations are deciding to use Signs of Safety as their practice model and train their staff in the Signs of Safety approach, like Agentschap Opgroeien is. Simply giving training without any follow up is not enough to effectively implement Signs of Safety in an organisation, or for it to be as effective as we need it to be in order to improve the lives of children and families.

Opgroeien has chosen a strategic “solution-focussed and strength-based” approach. Furthermore, they have chosen to use Signs of Safety for referrals. Opgroeien continues to develop this with all their partners within the youth-care authority.

This workshop is meant for directors, practice leaders and others in leadership positions or other staff members. It is one of two two-day courses.

During the workshop you will have the unique opportunity, together as a team, to think about how to implement Signs of Safety in your organisation and share your ideas with other organisations. By sharing your experiences with each other and by learning together you can strengthen your knowledge and experience.
