  • The objectives for this workshop are: To consider the question of whether to leave kids in their homes or place them when meth use is involved in the broader context of safety decision making To review critical safety concepts that apply To provide a method for analyzing meth related family situations to determine what is needed to protect kids To provide a practical experience of judging what sort of safety management is indicated in a meth-related case
  • This is the method for answering the question in meth cases – can we protect the kids in the home or should we remove? The next slide should be reviewed – the definition – before going onto the handout.
  • This slide shows the process to be used to complete the application. After participants read the intake see if they have any questions. The video involves three short interviews: with the child; with the non custodial father who is also the reporter; and with the mom. The interviews are excerpts of the initial assessment focused on maltreatment. The initial assessment would naturally involve a lot more information collection that is reflected in the Angela Russell Initial Assessment Findings. After the video is completed participants may have questions or comments before proceeding. Following the video participants should read the narrative to gain additional understanding of the Russell family before analyzing for safety management. Before analyzing the Russell case ask participants to refer to the universal safety threats. Attempt to reach some consensus about which threats are apparent in the Russell case. Use the Safety Intervention Analysis handout to walk participants through the process of determining the approach to safety management.
  • The objectives for this workshop are: To consider the question of whether to leave kids in their homes or place them when meth use is involved in the broader context of safety decision making To review critical safety concepts that apply To provide a method for analyzing meth related family situations to determine what is needed to protect kids To provide a practical experience of judging what sort of safety management is indicated in a meth-related case
  • The handout provides definitions, some explanation; and examples. Review these. Fundamentally the challenge in determining the right approach to safety management (in home or out of home) is to correctly identify and understand the meth-related safety threats and to evaluate the capacity of caregivers to protect. Present danger (at initial contact) involving meth issues likely will always require separation of the child from the situation – at least until more information is collected and more can be understood about the nature and extent of meth use and it effects on parenting; protectiveness; and family life. Impending danger – the state of danger existing because of meth use and related safety threats – is the real challenge for safety management. Sufficient information to understand meth use and what is going on is the most important part of the safety decision making and safety management process.
  • Comment and elaborate. Questions? It may be useful to point out that this is best done when sufficient information is available to fully understand the meth use and its affect on caregivers, children and the family. Here is a case for why the official full blown safety assessment and official fully blown safety plan needs to be considered at the conclusion of the initial assessment.
  • These are examples of functioning and family situations that are compromised by meth use. These are examples of what one sees in a case that represent the basis for, association with or cause of threats to safety. This leads to the matching process – family conditions to safety threats.
  • This slide provides an overview of the safety intervention analysis questions. Walk through the handout. Comment and elaborate. Discussion and questions.
  • The handout provides a visual for participants to see how this process of information collection; understanding; identification of meth related issues, problems and affected family circumstances reduces down what is happening to the identification of safety threats that must be controlled as the function of safety management. Walk through.
  • These questions frame and summarize the workshop.
