Serving Native Families Affected by Substance Use Disorders: Active Efforts and Plans of Safe Care

Tuesday Jun 30, 2020 - 10:00am to 11:15am +12
Event Description: 

Substance use disorders among pregnant women and the number of infants born with prenatal substance exposure continues to rise. To address this, the Child Abuse Prevention and Treatment Act (CAPTA) requires that states develop Plans of Safe Care and have policies and procedures to address the needs of this population. Presenters will briefly discuss the CAPTA requirements, some best practices, and examine the implications for active efforts and compliance with the Indian Child Welfare Act (ICWA). Then, presenters from the Yurok Tribe will engage participants in a discussion about how they worked across jurisdictions in a multidisciplinary process to better serve families.
