Child Welfare Training Toolkit

The National Center on Substance Abuse and Child Welfare, a resource center jointly funded by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration and the Children’s Bureau of the Administration on Children, Youth and Families, has created a Child Welfare Training Toolkit. The toolkit provides guidance to child welfare professionals about substance use and co-occurring disorders within families involved in the child welfare system. The toolkit comprises 10 modules – 7 core and 3 specialized areas – that build foundational knowledge to support an understanding of substance use, identify when substance use is a factor in child welfare cases, offer strategies for parental engagement, acknowledge the effects of substance use on children and caregivers, and present steps on how to build collaborations for a system of care.
