Skillful Screening

Skillful Screening Training equips supervisors and screening personnel
to screen for high-risk indicators
 during the applicant onboarding process.

The Skillful Screening Process educates your team

Programs that serve Vulnerable Adults are responsible for the protection and safety of those served. Effective screening of employees and volunteers is an important responsibility for program managers, coordinators and administrators.

How can we distinguish between a dangerous individual and an appropriate candidate ready to serve?

Hiring and screening personnel must be trained to recognize high-risk responses on applications, on reference forms and during an interview.  These responses can reveal an individual who may not be appropriate to work with vulnerable populations.

Skillful Screening is a deterrent to abusers

Silence and ignorance are the playground of the abuser. The Skillful Screening Process, combined with appropriate Background Checks, can encourage a sexual predator to ‘self-select out’ of employee or volunteer pools. These measures help prevent the abuser from gaining access to Vulnerable Adults through YOUR program.
