Safety Planning Video & Workbook

$50.00

Building meaningful safety plans is probably the hardest of all tasks in working with high-risk child protection cases. It is far easier for professionals to send parents to another course or treatment programme than to define what constitutes enough safety to close the case and involve family and professionals in working to realise that goal. Without clear safety goals, cases tend to drag on and child protection systems find they have increasing numbers of children in care for longer time.
