Researchers Forum: Developing Knowledge to Improve Outcomes for Families with Substance Use Disorders in the Child Welfare or Family Court Systems - December 10-11, 2003, Washington, DC

NCSACW hosted an invitational researcher forum with three primary goals:

  1. To access current research-based knowledge relevant to the mandates of the NCSACW;
  2. To facilitate the development of a network of researchers who will expand their efforts to share findings and work together on lessons learned, strategies to overcome research barriers, and improved research methods focused on the target population of NCSACW's work; and
  3. To help shape a national research agenda for future activities by identifying research gaps and making recommendations on future research efforts.

Below we have posted the Researchers Forum Agenda, Proceedings, various PowerPoint presentations and related conference materials.
