Practical Tips for Safety Planning
Just as we prepare our clients and youth for a tornado drill, we must prepare them to handle behavioral and social emergencies. Join us for the morning as we discuss safety planning and how you can make a safety plan with your youth and clients.
Topics we will discuss in the morning session:
The importance of safety planning and specifically, why it's important to build these plans if you plan to be on vacation, or your youth will be going on a break.
Practical tips for making a safety plan in different situations like suicide, domestic violence, sexual abuse or agression.
This plan will help you and your clients/youth identify who can help them in an emergency and how to access services outside of their work with you.
