Signs of Safety: Safety Planning Workbook
Signs of Safety: Safety Planning Book by Dr. Andrew Turnell.
Safety Planning is the business end of child protection work. Child protection professionals’ time is often eaten up in such tasks as assessing the situation, documenting the case to meet the requirements of their system, preparing court reports and organizing for family members to attend services and much more. In the end however, if the professionals are to get out of the family’s life, if the children are to return home, careful focus has to be given to how the parents and people who support them will live their everyday lives so the children will be looked after and be safe. This workbook is designed to help guide professionals in digging into what is ultimately the most challenging question in child protection work: what do we need to see to be satisfied we can close this case?
