      Introduction to the Child Welfare Training Toolkit

      This webinar discusses the newly updated Child Welfare Training Toolkit. The toolkit is a training package developed to educate child welfare workers about substance use and co-occurring issues among families involved in the child welfare system. The training is intended to provide foundational knowledge to help child welfare workers understand substance use disorders and other co-occurring issues; identify when substance use is a factor in a child welfare case; learn strategies for engaging parents and families in services; understand potential effects for the parents, children, and caregivers; and learn the importance of collaboration within a system of care. The webinar provides an overview of the topics in the toolkit and strategies for adapting the content for use in your organization or agency. The content also includes a review of the range of training materials, which were developed to be easily adapted to meet the needs of child welfare trainers as a component of training systems, in-person workshops, or training sessions.
