Course Description: Substance abuse is a serious problem in the United States and a significant factor leading to the removal of children from their home due to child abuse or neglect. Because of stigma and the possible removal of children, people with substance addiction or abuse will make tremendous efforts to hide their problem. This workshop looks at ways of identifying substance addiction or abuse, including the types of factors child welfare workers are likely to see and simplifies the process of identifying appropriate treatments and approaches. It will also look at ways to evaluate claims of recovery and discuss the design and implementation of safety plans to help children respond and seek protection when a parent is using. This workshop will utilize exercises, small and large group discussions, and visual displays.
