Let’s Talk About Who You Are: Guide for Staff
- Please review the informed consent portion of the Questionnaire on page 1 before administering the questionnaire.
- Please administer the Questionnaire with the youth, having the youth write in responses and discussing questions and answers as needed. The Youth should not complete the Questionnaire without you.
- The role of staff is to help explain questions and use the questionnaire to learn more about youth, but not to direct youth how to answer. Staff should always provide youth with the ability to answer or not answer as they see fit.
The Center for Children & Youth Justice’s (CCYJ) eQuality Project’s implementation of the Protocol for Safe & Affirming Care has prompted questions and concerns among both the professionals, volunteers, caregivers, and youth participating in the project and those who interact with participants. It is important to address these questions and concerns and remind those involved or impacted by the project of its fundamental purpose: to better ensure the health, safety, and well-being of all youth involved in systems of care.
The following is a list of frequently asked questions—and responses—about the project and similar projects across the country. Click here for PDF
