SOP Skills Lab: Behaviorally-Based Case Plans
Safety Organized Practice (SOP) skills labs are hands-on training opportunities to practice applying key elements of SOP to real-life child welfare referrals and cases in your county.
NOTE: Participants should bring one of their existing case plans that they would like to use for practice in developing a behaviorally-based case plan.
This SOP skills lab provides focused skill-building in developing behaviorally-based case plans. Although true development of behaviorally-based case plans must occur through the collaborative process of a Child and Family Team (CFT) meeting with the family and their network, it is important that social workers have a solid foundation in understanding the format of behaviorally-based case plan objectives, the preparatory work that must have been completed with the family and their network, and the process of creating behaviorally-based case plan objectives in the context of the CFT meeting.
This class will provide a brief refresher on the purpose, format and process of creating behaviorally-based case plans, followed by group practice in developing a behaviorally-based case plan for a real case from your county. If time permits, each participant will have the chance to practice creating behaviorally-based objectives on one of their cases. Come prepared to participate in a workshop format using one of your own cases, and bring one of your existing case plans to the training.
