Stick with it! The members of the RED team are charged with reviewing , evaluating and directing RED all cases that have been accepted through intake screening.
The RED team provides both structure and process in review of alleged reports of child maltreatment, evaluation of the available information, and direction regarding the agency response. This hands-on workshop will engage participants in both a dialogue about and allow for practice in creating meaningful and comprehensive safety plans which are rigorous, on the ground and sustainable.
Upstream Academy Network
Safety plans are detailed plans of action made in response to specifically identified dangers, both behavioral and action driven. This includes immediate safety plans, ongoing safety plans and after-care safety plans with families and their support networks. This course is specifically geared toward child welfare direct service staff, supervisors and family meeting facilitators.
Participants will gain in-depth knowledge and skills in the creation of safety plans that are rigorous and collaborative. Using safety mapping, harm and danger statements, safety planning, and the Three Houses tool, this workshop will explore strategies for integrating these safety organized practices into case plans and court reports. This one day workshop will address:. Facilitating the development of case plans that are customized, behavior-focused and family-centered requires skill and expertise in applying SOP strategies, utilizing SDM assessment tools, and writing and developing behavioral objectives.
This training will focus on engaging families in behavioral case plans by blending these interrelated strategies throughout the flow of practice. The goal of this conference is to bring together California counties that are implementing Safety Organized Practice SOP to deepen their practice and share their experiences and results with each other. This hands-on training will introduce participants to the Safe and Together Model concepts to increase their proficiency in engaging domestic violence survivors using solution-focused and safety-organized strategies.
In addition, participants will become acquainted with the SOP DV Timeline, a tool created to engage the survivor to partner with the agency in building a balanced assessment of safety and danger. Further, participants will have an opportunity to practice each step of the timeline process over the course of this training. During this one-day training, participants will learn the major concepts, basic principles and key techniques of SFI and how it compares and integrates with motivational interviewing MI. Participants will have the opportunity to learn SFI and MI interventions through discussion and training exercises.
Participants will be encouraged to explore how their own experiences can be applied using these perspectives and interventions in their work with children and families in child welfare. This training serves as a one-day follow-up session for participants who previously attended the two-day Family Meeting Facilitation, Part I training. In Part I , participants examined research-based skills and knowledge about family meetings, and worked to enhance and develop skills in facilitation of family meetings with an emphasis on the use of safety organized practice SOP tools and techniques.
In Part II, the group will reconvene to discuss and share their progress, as well as engage in focused skill-building to deepen their practice in using SOP in family meetings. Participants should be prepared to share their experience using skills learned in Part I.
Making Teaching Better
The purpose of Family Team Meetings FTMs of any type is to build agreements between the department, families, providers and other essential team members. It is largely the responsibility of meeting facilitators to bring a disparate group of people into FTMs and build critical agreements and to make important decisions. This workshop will provide participants with a solid foundation of theory and facilitation skills for immediate use in helping groups solve problems and build agreement to enhance the safety of children in a way that engages families.
Note: Completion of the SOP Foundational Institute is recommended, but not required, prior to attending this training. Designed to help bring the voice of children and young people into child protection and social service work, the Three Houses tool has had international success and is used worldwide including in the U. This one-day workshop offers an interactive opportunity to learn about the tool, how to apply it with children, young people and adults, along with seeing other ways it is applied.
The workshop also explores the Sphere model designed to support trauma recovery from relational trauma. They both guide decision making and promote consistency and depth of practice. As social workers build skills in SOP, they look to their supervisor for guidance and skills development. This one-day session will focus on strategies for supervisors to improve their own understanding of SOP, and ways to support integration of SOP into the daily practice and culture of their agency.
Supervisors are encouraged to bring their challenges, questions and their areas of struggle with SOP to this session.
This convening brings together California counties that are implementing Safety Organized Practice to share their experiences and results. The focus is on supporting the consistent and comprehensive implementation and evaluation of Safety Organized Practice throughout the state. All California counties that are using SOP or are interested in implementing SOP, specifically county leadership and staff who plan for capacity and sustainability, RTA staff, coaches and trainers.
If you have wanted to become an SOP trainer or coach, this session is for you! SOP is an approach to child welfare that integrates a number of promising practices into a clear and consistent framework for social workers, supervisors, and managers. From the early beginnings that included specialized training in SOP concepts to the current infusion of SOP into the California Child Welfare Core Practice Model, the strength-based, family-centered and safety-focused approach has continued to grow, refine and enhance child welfare practice to the benefit of California's children and families.
With the Title IV-E Waiver counties focusing their work on SOP and so many other counties at various stages of implementation, the opportunity for stakeholders to share their successes, learn from one another's experiences and discuss their implementation challenges has never been more valuable. To facilitate this learning forum, the Northern California Training Academy will be holding four learning collaboratives for counties and their community partners, with the goal of each collaborative focusing on a specific area of SOP.
These collaboratives will examine ways the practice has been expanded and deepened, how fidelity to the model can be measured, and how the practice has already improved the outcomes for children and families. Participants will benefit from enhancing their knowledge on SOP implementation approaches and developing collaborative solutions to shared challenges across jurisdictional contexts. In the interest of continuing to deepen the practice, we will incorporate continuous quality improvement CQI strategies for the areas of SOP that are explored. Counties are at various stages of implementation and depth of their practice, and providing stakeholders the opportunity to share their successes, learn from one another's experiences and discuss their implementation challenges has never been more valuable.
Participants will benefit from enhancing their knowledge of SOP implementation approaches and developing collaborative solutions to shared challenges across jurisdictional contexts. Solution focused therapy SFT is a brief therapy model that is future oriented, goal directed and focuses on solutions, rather than on the problems that brought clients in for treatment.
During this highly interactive one-day training, participants will learn the major concepts, basic principles and practical interventions of SFT and how it compares and integrates with motivational interviewing MI. They will also understand how the SFT model can be applied in their own coaching practice in order to serve diverse populations in various settings. Participants will have the opportunity to learn SFT and MI interventions through direct observation, discussion and training exercises.
Participants will be encouraged to explore how their own client experiences can be applied using these perspectives and interventions. They both guide decision-making and promote consistency and depth of practice. As social workers build skills in SOP, they look to their supervisor for guidance and skill development. The Academy is offering this special opportunity to work with Sue Lohrbach in order to refresh your working knowledge of SOP and all of its components. In the past seven years, we have made great progress on the journey of implementing SOP into child welfare practice:.
A historical perspective on the discovery of statins
The Northern California Training Academy wants to ensure that all trainers and coaches are prepared and knowledgeable about Safety Organized Practice and the strategies for working with families. Safety organized practice SOP seeks to form a constructive, purposeful focus among all the stakeholders involved with children and families by generating a clear, shared understanding of the problems facing that family and a straightforward vision of what future safety for the children needs to look like.
Yesterday, I informed parents, families and staff via email regarding the recent newspaper article that there has been water testing in the City of Pico Rivera. The Pico Water District and the Water Authority have stated that the recent newspaper article may have caused some confusion with the public about the water quality in the City of Pico Rivera.
Therefore, even if the water is deemed to be safe by the Pico Water District and the Water Authority, as well as other regulatory agencies, the El Rancho Unified School District has taken measures to be proactive in our schools. Our Maintenance and Operations team is currently visiting all school campuses and district offices to identify each water fountain as we will be installing water filters at all school and district office locations.
Please be reassured that the El Rancho Unified School District is taking all the necessary precautions to ensure that our students and staff have access to safe drinking water now and in the future. Sincerely, Frances Esparza, Ed.
