Welcome! I’m a registered Clinical Social Worker in Ontario, Canada and a licensed Signs of Safety Trainer and Consultant with over a decade of practical experience working with organizations, families, and social workers.
The Signs of Safety approach focuses on the question “How can the worker build partnerships with parents and children in situations of suspected or substantiated child abuse and still deal rigorously with the maltreatment issues?” This strengths-based and safety-focused approach to child protection work is grounded in partnership and collaboration. It expands the investigation of risk to encompass strengths and Signs of Safety that can be built upon to stabilise and strengthen a child’s and family’s situation.
