An overview of how to use the Tuituia framework and information on each of the domains and subdomains, including dynamic risk factors.
Guidance for using the Summary of needs and strengths and Why we are involved and what we are worried about sections of the Tuituia recording tool.
Use these prompts to gather and assess as much information as possible from the person reporting the concerns about te tamaiti.
When we determine a report of concern requires a statutory response, we must decide the timeframe to complete the safety and risk screen.
Many parents lightly smack their children to correct bad behaviour. We need to use professional judgement and common sense when we receive a report of concern about smacking, while also keeping safety in mind.
The safety and risk screen identifies if there are concerns that warrant immediate action by Oranga Tamariki to secure the safety of te tamaiti.
The consult aims to increase safety for te tamaiti by using the existing strengths and resources of the family/whānau to address areas of danger or harm.
The SKS screens help us assess whether te tamaiti is dealing with substance abuse issues, suffering from psychological distress, or at risk of death by suicide.
A gateway assessment is an interagency process that helps to clarify and identify ways to address the health and education needs of tamariki we work with.
The Three Houses are a visual way to identify strengths, risks and vulnerabilities as well as the hopes and dreams of te tamaiti and their family/whānau.
Scaling questions are a valuable assessment tool. They assume that things happen on a continuum and open up room for discussion about what could be different.
