Screening & Assessment for Family Engagement, Retention, & Recovery (SAFERR) This workshop will present the Screening and Assessment for Family Engagement, Retention and Recovery (SAFERR)

model to promote child safety and family well-being within the practical realities and legislative mandates that drive agen- cies. While SAFERR suggests standards of practice, its focus is on connections, communications, and collaborative ca- pacities across systems. These standards apply to child welfare, alcohol and drug service and court systems, but sug- gested strategies are also relevant for coordinating services across welfare, criminal justice and mental health systems. While substance use, abuse or dependence alone is not the sole determinant of risk to children, the SAFERR model sug- gests the need for child welfare policies that call for initial and ongoing screening and assessment of possible substance use disorders.
