Texas CPS is bringing the Signs of Safety approach to Texas. Signs of Safety is an innovative approach to casework that is transforming the way we work with children, youth, and families. The approach focuses on the question “How can the worker build partnerships with parents and children in situations of suspected or substantiated child abuse and still deal rigorously with the maltreatment issues?”
Signs of Safety approach is inclusive and involves everyone interested in making the best decisions for our children and youth. Signs of Safety is going statewide to all stages of service and all regions. It is another way that we are operationalizing the Texas CPS Practice Model.
