Speaker: Dylan Svobodny, CPS, Clay County Social Services

What was the best part about your learning experience with SafeGenerations and Susie Essex?

Dylan Svobodny: Hello, everyone! I'm a Child Protection Investigator in Minnesota. I just completed the Safe Generations training with Susie Essex And out of that training, I really felt like it was helpful in order to feel like I wasn't alone in doing this work. I felt like I've done trainings for this year quite a bit and the this training in particular - the Safe Generations training, has been the best - the one that I've most enjoyed. I really felt like the trainers have done the work themselves and you don't always feel that way but, in this one I definitely did. And the feedback and advice I got felt like it could directly apply to the work that I'm doing, which made me feel like it was worth my time. And so, I'd highly recommend the Safe Generations training. I think that that's the best part was hearing from the trainers about work that they've done that I felt like I could directly apply to what I do. Thanks

What do you want to tell others about the ReSolutions Together approach to safety planning?

Dylan Svobodny: I've done CPS for seven years now. And some of the things that I've - the simplest thing that I've learned in those seven years is that CPS is a really hard job. I also know that the ReSolutions Approach and safety planning makes that hard job a little bit easier. And I would say that this approach helps families and it also protects CPS workers.

How is ReSolutions Together helpful?

Dylan Svobodny: It gives you a sense of direction in really difficult cases that it can be easy to feel like you're stuck. And so I think the ReSolutions Approach makes a cps worker's job easier and benefits the family. And so I really think it's a win win. And I would recommend it to anyone, any CPS worker who wants to do the best job they can.
