The Alameda County Assessment Center is a place for children and youth to stay while they await placement within the foster care system. Youth coming to the Assessment Center are often removed from their homes due to reasons of abuse and/or neglect or are changing placements within the foster care system. When youth are removed, it is possible there will be an escalation of suicidality, because of the intensity of their experience and the nature of trauma from removal. This training aims to review safety protocol and emergency procedures, while youth await placement at the Alameda County Assessment Center. In this training, providers will have the opportunity to identify ways to keep youth struggling with suicidality safe and to create safety plans.
