SDM Supervisor Working Group

On September 24, 2021, SDM Consultants Rachel Andal and Ashley Hricz hosted a quarterly SDM Supervisors Working Group with First Nation CFS protection supervisors. Elder Ernestine Starr opened the session with a greeting and prayer to guide the working group.

The working group took time to remember the late Remonda Gardipy, supervisor with QBOW. Elder Ernestine led a time of remembrance. Remonda was a valuable member of the group, and who will be greatly missed.

Some of the topics discussed at this quarterly meeting were:

  • Identifying which SDM consultant is designated per Agency
  • New SDM Tuesday Series
  • Upcoming virtual Evident Change- Child Interviewing Series  
  • Provided updates and shared information about a proposed focus group lead by Saskatchewan Ministry of Social Services to gather feedback on the Structured Decision Making (SDM) system and Integrated Practice Strategies (IPS) used in Child Protective Services.
  • Reviewed SDM Safety Planning process and shared a newly adapted reference to group.
  • Shared updates from SFNFCI


Our next SDM Supervisors Working Group will be held on November 25, 2021.
