Five-day Signs of Safety Planning Bootcamp in beautiful Kamloops, BC, Canada

Rosina Harvey-Keeping, Regional Director for Signs of Safety in Canada and Caara Goddard, licensed trainer and consultant are teaming up to bring Signs of Safety — Safety Planning Bootcamp to British Columbia.

The Safety Planning Bootcamp is designed to take practitioners, team leaders and executive leaders through applying the Signs of Safety logics in and throughout an entire child protection case from beginning to end in the five days.

This time together will also include some discussions, adaptations and specialized focus on how this framework can be approached in working with our First Nations families. Caara and Rosina continue to work from a place of curious inquiry and both have spent many years trying to work differently with families, youth and children coming into contact with Child Protection Services. In this Bootcamp, Rosina and Caara will share their biggest learnings, what they have learned that works and push practitioners and leaders to think about how they can do this work differently, utilizing the framework while ensuring the work is grounded in the values and beliefs of the First Nations and communities we serve.

All participants will receive detailed safety planning learning materials as part of the programme.

They will host the event in the beautiful Secwepemc territory in Kamloops, B.C. at the South Thompson Inn. Rooms are available at the Inn, please book the rooms directly with them

The sessions will run from 9am – 4pm each day. There will be two evenings for cultural activities hosted by the local Delegated Aboriginal agencies, Secwepemc Child and Family Services and Lii Michif Otipemisiwak.
