Parental substance use disorders are a factor in many child welfare cases. This training will provide an overview of working with substance-abusing Native families from both a direct service and a systems collaboration point of view. The trainer will discuss how to deal with this issue and how systems collaboration can make successful outcomes possible. 

A collaborative model that engages child welfare, the courts, and behavioral health providers will be discussed. Participants will learn five essential roles for working with substance-abusing families and how their work can be accomplished through partnering on the parent's recovery.
