In your Outline, read the group of statements and place a
check by each statement that indicates a recruiter’s best
practice to maintain his or her safety.
Handout on Safety While Recruiting (National ID&R Manual, Chapter 5: Developing Action Plans and Contacting Families), pp. 7–9, Trainer’s Resource Materials, one copy per participant.
Read the directions from the slide to participants.
Tell participants they can work with one other person from their tables or as an entire table group to identify best practices. Additional directions are on the Outline (p. 4), but tell participants they are only identifying best practices right now.
Debrief by reading each statement and asking participants if they chose this statement as a best practice; why or why not?
Ask participants to highlight the statements that identify their current practices.
Ask participants to look at any practices they did not highlight and to underline one or two that they will adopt from now on.
Provide participants with the Safety while Recruiting section from the National ID&R Manual, Chapter 5: Developing Action Plans and Contacting Families. Give them enough time to review the handout and ask questions. You should also direct participants to state or local safety plans, protocols, or best practices.
All statements have been identified as best practices in the National ID&R Manual, Chapter 5: Developing Action Plans and Contacting Families.
