SAMHSA's GAINS webinar on Supporting Family Drug Court Participants Through Comprehensive Case Plans
Supporting Family Drug Court Participants through Comprehensive Case Plans: We’re in This Together
February 22, 2021, 2:30-4:00 p.m. ET
Families involved in child welfare—who are also affected by substance use disorders—benefit from a family-centered case plan. Developing comprehensive plans that genuinely reflect all family members' strengths, challenges, and needs is essential. This webinar, hosted by SAMHSA's GAINS Center, explores the research supporting family-centered case plans; discusses ways to actively involve the parent, child, and family support system in both case planning and monitoring; and explains which elements the family-centered case plan should include.
Presenters will share ideas on how community-based organizations can collaborate effectively with child welfare and other public agencies—enabling them to meet the requirements of regulations and funding—while creating a meaningful and manageable case plan for families.
After attending this webinar, participants will be able to:
Summarize the research supporting the development and use of family-centered, comprehensive case plans.
Describe steps to generate a family-centered case plan that reflects the family's voice and includes case plan requirements originating in child welfare, treatment, and the courts.
Establish processes that continue to actively engage the parent, child, and family in monitoring the case plan's progress throughout the child welfare case.
