Registration

Description

One of the most difficult decisions in child welfare is determining when a child requires placement to protect the child from an imminent safety threat or to mitigate ongoing harm.  The decision will have long-term ramifications for the child and family.  This training will cover the factors that go into making this decision including both harm to the child in their own home as well as the protective factors that can keep a child safe.

Mr. Wilson worked as a caseworker in public child welfare in Colorado Springs, Colorado from 1971-74 and in Canon City, Colorado from 1974-78.
