The process of reunification in child welfare cases in which sexual abuse has occurred requires the child welfare professional to take special measures within the reunification process. After attending this workshop, participants will understand the safety issues present during the reunification process; the key ingredients needed in a safety plan; the critical treatment milestones that the victim, perpetrator and family must meet prior to reunification; and the process that should be used when reunifying a family and closing a case.
