Minnesota Child Protection Practice Model

This is from 
Minnesota Child Protection Practice Model



I SCREAM ,  CRY  AND ARCH MY BACK IN THE CAR SEAT SO THEY CANT STRAP ME IN TO STOP THEM FROM TAKING ME AWAY FROM MY MOMMY AT THE END OF MY 4 HOUR A WEEK VISIT 
MY BROTHERS TELL MOMMY PLEASE I DON'T WANT TO GO


Communication:
Effectively sending and receiving information within the appropriate cultural context. Methods include verbal, non-verbal, electronic and written communication. Child protection should accommodate for A variety of ways to allow for effective communication.

LE SUEUR COUNTY ON THE OTHER HAND HANDLES COMMUNICATION LIKE THIS:
AB is informed by the caseworker Sally Schroer that she is never to speak to her again. What would prompt such a response? The four year old of GH had his mouth busted open when he was hit in the face by a ball thrown by a 13 yr old in foster care. When mom has a off schedule visit due to an appointment the 4 year old has a therapy apt at the same time. When the 4 year old realizes he will have a short visit with his mom he runs screaming and crying to his mother and falls reopening the wound in his mouth. When mom gets home she tells AB what happened. AB said just text the worker and tell her you want him to see the doctor its an easy fix. Mom texts the worker letting her know she wants her son to see the doctor. Mom receives a response from the caseworker; it is best we not talk until after court in two days.  GH is upset by the response and AB does not understand how something like that could go poorly. GH tells AB what the case worker's reply was. AB says let me see you must of misunderstood. A case worker would not respond that way. GH shows AB and sure enough Sally Schroer responds to the mother's request for her son see a doctor, with we have court in two days I think it best we do not speak until after court. 

This is an example of Le Sueur County Caseworker's effective communication that is offered to a mother whose children have been taken by the county. 

AB texts the worker and says a child under your authority was injured in foster care the mother wants him to see a doctor thank you.  


Schroer responds for your information I was informed of the injury earlier today.
Schroer has texting and phone communication capabilities with the mother and never informs the mother of the child that her 4 year old had his mouth busted open in foster care.
Also another example of effective communication

 I already made an appointment for him tomorrow and  this is abuse of a personal phone line and to never contact her again. If you need to talk to someone contact my supervisor Lowell Freeman.....
Also another example of effective communication to the grandmother of the children she has taken custody of. 

Schroer never tells the mom when and where she needs to be for the doctor's appointment.
Once the appointment is over Sally Schroer never contacts the mother to let her know what the doctor said
Mom texts Sally Schroer asking what happened
Schroer responds happy as a clam this morning follow up as required


AB texts Sally Schroer back from GH's phone for GH and asks the worker to please  explain further?
Schroer responds I think its best we do not talk until after court.
Also another example of effective communication

Mom calls the DR who will not elaborate on what follow up as required means, because the DR cannot verify its mom over the phone. The physician is in Montgomery and mom is in Faribault without transportation.

GH finds out 2 days later the day of court what actually happened in a letter to the judge. AB notices right away the social worker is submitting fraudulent events in her documentation. AB witnessed all of the correspondence that took place.  The documentation is setup to make a mother look like a liar.

AB called Sue Rynda HEAD of human services and asked for the complaint process because one of her employees had been submitting fraudulent information in her documentation to the judge, plus a number of other things that work against the reunification process of the mother with her children.

Sue Rynda responds by cutting all forms of communication for AB with the exception of one. She will be required to purchase stamps and forced to use a system that will delay correspondence up to three days.
example of effective communication

Threats So many Threats why


AB just got off the phone with the drug treatment counselor who told AB if you show up for that meeting then Sally Schroer has said she will not attend. She will go down to the judge and lie to him by saying GH is refusing to work with human services. Then GH never sees her kids again.

AB sent an email to the social worker, and Lawyer after receiving the threat Sally Schroer made as an attempt to control AB by hurting someone she cared about. If AB did not do as she was told by Sally Schroer that was the price she would pay. AB sent an email to  let Sally Schroer know that the kind of threat she made to control what AB did is seriously inappropriate, and NEEDS to stop and that her conduct has been documented.  


Sally Schroer responds with an additional threat; If you contact me again I will press a harassment charges on you??? Sally has spent quite a bit of time controlling people with threats and when she meets someone who points it out she still cannot stop trying to control the person with threats.
example of effective communication

Suddenly Lowell Freeman is saying my lawyer Megan Gaudette is telling me I am not allowed to talk to you ? despite the signed release. Lowell freeman is not the only person who Gaudette tells to not speak with AB. Gaudette tells everyone in Child protection and Shari Solheim to have no contact with AB.  
example of effective communication

 AB writes in her journal that she struggles to wrap her head around all of this guilty behavior pouring out of a child protection department and is in constant disbelief and awe struck by the county employees behavior!  AB knows how important family support is in these issues and any positive support is an asset for a caseworker. Yet this county is given supporting evidence that the social worker is unfit to help this mother and blocks the concerned family member rather than replace her. 
  

AB called to see why there WAS a problem with her attending the meeting if it helped the mom. AB was transferred to Shari Solheim. Shari picks up the phone AB explains she would only like to be there for support to help mom through because Schroer has become a trigger for mom. Shari says who is this and AB responds responds AB. Shari says I am not allowed to talk to you and hangs up????? 
example of effective communication

The letters sent by HEAD OF HUMAN SERVICE SUSAN RYNDA AND ASSISTANT COUNTY ATTORNEY MEGAN GAUDETTE Informed AB  that she was no longer allowed to contact anyone in the human services department unless it was through the mail.AB already pays their wages with tax dollars. Why should she be restricted to forms of communication she has to spend additional money on.  Megan Gaudette goes on to explain please tell Anita she will not be allowed to do what she wants. 

 It says in AB's notes she is worried the months of abuse and violation of the mothers rights with the constant bragging about how mom will never get her kids back because Sally Schroer has found them new parents was tormenting the mother. After giving supportive evidence to Sally's supervisor AB says he still refused to take the abuser off GH's case. So AB says than allow me to be with her during interaction so she will not be as triggered by her abuser. The worker cannot help a former child abuse victim by abusing her it wont work. Megan Gaudette has no problem protecting Sally Schroer to enable her to further abuse the mother by blocking AB She also enables further abuse by isolating a trauma survivor from having someone present on her behalf

IRONY: Gaudette writes in her bio that it might sound cheesy but I like helping people? I assume she is referring to her boss's childless cousins. Not people who need help. 

Drug treatment center Fountain Centers counselor: There is no question that Sally Schroer is grossly abusing GH but it does not matter she still has to do what she has to do to get her kids home. AB says yes she does but she will do it with out being abused. The counselor says why cant you stay out of it!!!! This mom came in to this world a victim she does not need to be victimized by an agency I am funding with my tax dollars to help hold families together.  In the real world mental health professionals would tell her to get out of the relationship with the abuser. Where does a drug treatment counselor get off saying she needs to stay in a relationship with her abuser. She put AB in place so she could do what she needed to do and AB took on the abuser.  







The family is both the fundamental unit of society as well as the root of culture. It ... is a perpetual source of encouragement, advocacy, assurance, and emotional refueling that empowers a child to venture with confidence into the greater world and to become all that he can be.
MARIANNE E. NEIFERT, Dr. Mom's Parenting Guide




Lowell Freeman and Sally Schroer EVENTUALLY  blocked GH and AB's email addresses so they could not send emails TO THEM. 
example of effective communication

Hi Carie Minnesota law says I should present to you why I think it is in the best interest of the children to transfer custody. So can I tell you why I think it is in the child's best interest? 

Carie Krenik; NO
example of effective communication

Hi Carie I will need in writing that you refused to hear why it was in the best interest of the child to do a transfer of custody 

Letter from lawyer 4 days later. Only willing to terminate rights and then you can hire attorney to fight it in court to get kids. 

This is evidence that she is in on selling the children like schroer was. If they don't terminate the people placing the order to keep her kids, wont be able to keep them. The same people who are related to the county Attorney Brent Christain 

Hi Carie why is it that the visits are isolated
Carie: Because County officials said 
example of effective communication

hi Carie   the mother has the right to have someone present to represent her during visits why is it she cant have someone with her? Because county officials say so. so you don't have a reason why that the decision was made to violate the mothers rights? NO.  If you do not like it get a lawyer and fight me in court.
example of effective communication

All the above Taken from AB's Journal 

WHY WOULD COUNTY OFFICIALS JUDGES AND SOCIAL WORKERS NOT HAVE RESPECTABLE UNDERSTANDABLE REASONS TO GIVE TO CONCERNED FAMILY WITH QUESTIONS. WELL THEY CAN EXPLAIN THAT IN A CIVIL SUIT TO A FEDERAL COURT..... 

THIS IS GROSS NEGLECT WHEN A COUNTY IS UNABLE TO JUSTIFY DECISIONS. THE JUDGE ALSO IGNORES SUPPORTING EVIDENCE TO RULE IN A PREFERRED OUTCOME FOR HIS FRIENDS.
