PLEASE NOTE THIS TRAINING IS EXCLUSIVELY FOR NORTHERN ACADEMY INSTRUCTORS
The Academy is recruiting trainers and coaches for Safety Organized Practice (SOP) training and support. If you have wanted to become an SOP trainer or coach, this session is for you! Additionally, existing SOP trainers and coaches are welcome to attend as a refresher.
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. This two-day T4T will cover key components of the two-day SOP foundational institute, which includes and draws from approaches such as solution-focused strategies, Signs of Safety, the Structured Decision Making® system (SDM), trauma-informed practice, appreciative inquiry, and cultural humility, paying particular attention to the use of effective facilitation skills to link them together. Additionally, SOP approaches to domestic violence, substance use disorders and other key child welfare issues will be discussed. Several newly integrated practices include the Integrated Core Practice Model (ICPM), Child and Family Teams (CFTs) and Child Adolescent Needs and Strengths (CANS) and how these practices work together with SOP to support improved outcomes for children and families in child welfare
