In this course, you will learn how protective actions help ensure the safety of children in present danger. You will learn what components protective actions must include for you to feel confident in their being effective. Of particular importance, you will consider how you decide whether a specific adult can be relied upon to participate and provide safety to the child. Finally, you will put everything you have learned about child safety into practice as you consider a scenario and determine whether present danger exists and, if so, what protective actions might be effective.
Participants register separately for each part of the module but MUST complete each session within the module in order. Participants who have not completed 1.1 and 1.2 will not be allowed to participate in 1.3.
