Sleep Easy Knowing Your Clients Are Safe –

All While Staying Above Water on Paperwork

If you’re a direct support professional responsible for assessing the safety of children and families, you’re no stranger to lying awake at the 2AM Doubting Hour. The internal dialogue probably sounds something like this:

“Did I make the right decision?”

“I know she said she’d never use in front of Tom,

but how can I be sure?”

“It feels like her life is in my hands –

but I can’t be there 24/7.”

And hey, if you’re worrying?

That means you’re thoughtful.

That means you care.

And we get it - this job is not easy. Assessing safety, whether initial or ongoing, is tough, high-stakes, and can sometimes feel like we’re tasked with predicting the future.

We know you want your clients to be safe, and that you need a way to help them get there that doesn’t leave you drowning in meaningless paperwork and doubt.

That’s why we’ve combined our 10,000+ hours of experience consulting with front-line staff, supervisors, and directors in 7 countries to bring you a mini-course that will help you confidently craft impactful, tailored safety plans with families that actually make a difference.
