This publication examines current research regarding child welfare worker safety,
focusing on the context and root causes of violence against child welfare workers,
the laws and policies states have used to address the issue, and the strategies that
agencies and workers can use to enhance workers' safety and well-being in the workplace.
These guidelines address safety within the context of social work practice. Ideally,
these guidelines can stimulate the development of agency policies and practices to

use these guidelines to assess agency culture of safety and to advance professional
and personal well-being.

"Serving Those Who Serve Others"
The mission of the Central California Training Academy (CCTA) is to enhance the ability
of staff in public social services and child welfare agencies to protect children
and to prevent placement whenever possible.
Through the Academy, child welfare workers will have greater access to current and
state-of-the-art child welfare practices, thereby leading to more competent workers
in the field.
