This course reviewed the individual roles of each TEAM member, and stressed the importance of working together in order to protect the child. As indicated, we may sometimes experience differences of opinion on if a child should be reunified; however we must all work together to work out what's BEST for each child.
As the saying goes... "There is no 'I' in any team", however we need to remember that each memeber of the team has a voice, and we need to use it sometimes.
