Mitigating Safety and Risk for Children Affected by Parental Substance Use Disorders Involved in the Child Welfare System February 16, 2023
NCSACW invites you to a webinar to learn about a collaborative approach to mitigate safety and risk factors for children affected by parental substance use disorders (SUDs).
Parental substance use disorders and co-occurring mental health challenges can create unique child safety and risk concerns. Child welfare professionals are tasked with identifying parental substance use, assessing the effect of substance use on children, and incorporating protective capacities and factors in safety planning. To meet the needs of both parents and their children, a collaborative approach with substance use treatment professionals and other service providers can strengthen safety planning to enhance child and family well-being.
