New training opportunity - Building Safety When Parents Use Substances

What is the point at which a parent who uses or abuses substances creates an unsafe environment for a child? How can you build a consistent, best-practice response when working with families affected by substance use?

The answers to these questions are nuanced and multifaceted. The course Building Safety When Parents Use Substances will give you the tools you need AND provide you the opportunity to consider the impacts of substance use on child welfare practice—from screening to assessment to an ongoing case.

In this interactive course, you’ll get familiar with the dynamics of and differences between

  • substance use
  • substance abuse, and
  • addiction.

You’ll leave informed and equipped to enhance safety-building practices with families when substance use is a factor.

Pssst! If you’re a caseworker with less than two years’ experience, this course is for you! If you’re a more experienced caseworker or supervisor, you may be ready for another course: Enhancing Practice With Families Impacted by Substance Use.
