Family Services Assessments
ND Child Protection Services Family Services Assessment
While all Child Protection Service reports require a comprehensive assessment in order to assure that children are safe and protected, not all cases need a full CPS assessment and a maltreatment determination for the family to receive services. To develop the most appropriate, most effective, and least intrusive response to “low risk” reports of child abuse or neglect, North Dakota has developed a Family Services Assessment response. This training will assist to explain this process.
