Child 1st is a self-directed resource guidebook for child welfare emergency response social workers to further their understanding, knowledge and skills when separating children and parents due to substantiated findings of child abuse, neglect, or exploitation. Learning objectives include: (1) recognizing the laws and regulations that social workers must follow; (2) knowing causes and symptoms of physical abuse, sexual abuse, emotional maltreatment, and neglect; (3) helping children understand reasons for this difficult experience; (4) explaining to parents the reason for investigations and resulting separations and engaging them in supporting their children during this process; (5) demonstrating compassion regarding how investigations and separation impact loss and trauma; and (6) accessing support regarding professional and personal risk factors associated with burnout, secondary traumatic stress, or compassion fatigue. Child 1st is a self-directed design so social workers can work at their own pace. Child 1st includes both activities and resources for future support.
