Authentic Family Engagement to Achieve Optimum Outcomes
This webinar is hosted by National Association of Counsel for Children (NACC)
A family-centered approach is key to authentic family engagement, effective treatment, sustained recovery, and family wellbeing. There is not a universally accepted definition of a family-centered approach. Despite differences in definitions, there are a set of common essential ingredients that are used across the continuum of providers and systems that includes a comprehensive array of clinical treatment and related support services that meet the needs of each family member, not only of the individual requesting care. This webinar will highlight the essential ingredients required to successfully implement a family-centered approach and cover practical strategies, challenges, and successes from experts in the field. In addition, it will review the state and local leadership efforts needed to ensure the implementation and sustainability of a family-centered approach. A series of companion modules developed by the National Center on Substance Abuse and Child Welfare, Implementing a Family-Centered Approach for Families Affected By Substance Use Disorders and Involved with Children Welfare Services, will be featured during the presentation. This resource is designed for state, county, and agency-level collaborative partners working together to improve systems, services, and outcomes for children and families affected by substance use disorders.
