Safety Organized Practice Training for Trainers

The Northern 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, this T4T is recommended for all existing Academy SOP trainers and coaches as a refresher course, as there have been significant changes made to the 2-day SOP Foundational Institute.

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 the newly revised version of the two-day SOP foundational institute, which includes and draws from approaches such as solution-focused brief therapy, 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. 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.
