statewide training initiatives. NCSACW develops online tutorials for child welfare workers, substance abuse treatment counselors and family court professionals. This workshop will discuss building the capacity of staff, regardless of their ex- perience level, to recognize and address the issue of substance abuse in the child welfare and family court population. The online training format provides an easily accessible means of providing information and resources. Participant Workbook and Supervisor Handbook components serve as examples for others looking to strength understanding and supervision around these issues, as well as tools to reinforce learning post-training.

4:00—6:30…………………FEATURED WORKSHOP.…………...……………..…...Workshop Session Partnerships, Policies & Practices: A collaborative framework for addressing the complex needs

of children affected by substance use disorders Parental substance use disorders are a factor in the majority of child welfare cases, yet there is scant evidence about what

works. This workshop will describe the continuum of services necessary to effectively serve children affected by substance use disorders and their families. The session will provide an overview of the problem, with a brief discussion on the impact of parental substance use on children across the lifespan from pre-natal exposure to childhood to adolescence from a na- tional as well as Alaska specific perspective. The presentation will center on a model policy framework that draws on the resources and talents of multiple systems. Findings from the National Center for Substance and Child Welfare (NCSACW) and National Association of State Alcohol and Drug Abuse Directors (NASADAD) study on therapeutic services to children of parents in substance abuse treatment will be presented.
