NJACP is sponsoring the Ensuring an Effective Investigation of Serious Incidents Workshop on March 28 - 29, 2017.
Presenter: Lori Tarke, LDT Consulting Agency, LLC
Conducting an investigation relating to allegations of abuse, neglect and/or exploitation or other unusual incidents is much more than simply talking to individuals. There is a methodology that should be used to elicit the appropriate information that is necessary to validate or dismiss allegations. Learning both the methodology and techniques will help facilitate an unbiased, comprehensive investigation that will allow your organization to make effective changes in training, take corrective action if the allegations are substantiated and ensure a standard process for such reviews.
Following feedback from prior participants in the training program offered through NJACP, this program has been revised, updated and will utilize more current training methods including videos, role play, sample reports, among other techniques. In addition, the workshop is now two rather than three days; the same comprehensive training will be provided and participants may elect to take a test if he/she so desires and receive certification, however, it is compressed into two days, thereby limiting the amount of time an individual is absent from the agency. And finally, to ensure there is consistency, NJACP will consult with DHS’ OPIA (Office of Program Integrity & Accountability) to gain an understanding of their investigatory process, identify the most common reported incidents, and learn of investigations that have been conducted where there are questionable practices or gaps in information.
This two-day workshop will include real world scenarios from the field, best practices in maintaining safety, conducting investigations, obtaining written statements, proper documentation and corrective action. Goals will emphasize:
Lori Tarke will be conducting the training. She is a national platform speaker specializing in leadership training, team dynamics, and cultural competence, among many other credentials. Lori has conducted workshops for NJACP for close to five years and, as a result, has a well-founded understanding of the IDD world. She has also conducted workshops, in addition to providing keynote speeches for national associations, Fortune 500 companies, not for profit organizations and educational institutions. She has a BA in Psychology and a Master’s in Education.
