Five-day Signs of Safety Safety Planning Bootcamp with Rosina Harvey-Keeping and Caara Goddard
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 Cranbrook, British Columbia in 2020.
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 specialised focus on how this framework can be approached in working with our First Nations families. While Rosina and Caara are not experts in Indigenous Child Welfare, both of them 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 learning, what they have learned that works to push practitioners and leaders to think about how they can do this work differently to create meaningful change in child welfare.
Sessions will run from 9 am until 4 pm with breaks.
