“The Power of Partnership video and workbook is quite simply the best way to introduce the Signs of Safety approach to people new to the approach and what’s more it always inspires and deepens the practice of those who know the model well.”

"The learning opportunities provided by SafeGenerations are unique and special experiences. The online classroom helps people from different contexts communicate with one another about practice. We get to share perspectives from various geographical areas, roles, and points of view. This makes me a better practitioner because it gives me a more complete picture of how things are applied from rural to urban jurisdictions, between investigations and case management, and even from supervisors to workers.
Being able to enter comments and reflections into the online classroom and then have other people discuss the same concepts and ideas gives me courage to move my work forward."

"There were so many things I appreciated about the Power of Partnership Course!...The opportunity for group collaboration and discussion; Working through a family case study while applying my learning to everyday work with children and their families; The ability to refer back to the PoP curriculum and postings as needed. I also appreciated the feedback along the way from the SafeGenerations facilitators."

The SafeGenerations Team has worked together to develop this course. The full-time team (Andrea Robideau, Bill Schulenberg, Sarah Sundman and Sherry Amelse) has more than 50+ combined years of experience using the Signs of Safety framework in direct practice with families. They know first-hand what it takes to learn and grow in this approach.
The SafeGenerations team began teaching the Signs of Safety approach in 2008. As of 2017, SafeGenerations had provided Signs of Safety training and consulting services to more than 65 jurisdictions across the United States and Canada. Because they stay closely connected to the international Signs of Safety community including the co-founder of the Signs of Safety approach, Andrew Turnell, and because they continue to work alongside families and frontline practitioners, the trainers at SafeGenerations bring the newest model developments as well as their tried-and-true methods for engaging families to collaboratively build lasting safety for their children.
