All of the SafeGenerations folks are knowledgeable, and present with the passion they have for the model and the work. Feedback from the trainers was instructive and presented in a strengths based fashion – they held us accountable without removing responsibility. It was very useful to be in small groups with other professionals with varying level of expertise and experience.
I feel more grounded in the work and recognize that it’s ok to start simple and keep it simple for as long as we need to. I’ve learned to resist the urge to fix – to put it back on the family/worker and get the solution from them! Hospitality of the [SafeGenerations] crew was excellent and made it comfortable and easy to share. I really appreciated learning from agencies that are more advanced or farther along the journey as well as those just starting out. Connecting with people excited about this work and willing to share and learn together to go back and spread to our respective agencies has been energizing and encouraging.
This training has really helped me on all aspects of SofS. I really struggled prior to this training with applying signs of safety as a supervisor. This training has provided clarity!! I feel more confident on all content covered.
