Webinar – Strengthening Families: What Role Can Courts Play in Upstream Family Preservation?

Courts can have a positive impact on families affected by the opioid crisis, but traditionally that role has been reactive, occurring after a dependency petition is filed. Increasing reports of maltreatment due to substance use disorders in conjunction with more children entering an overburdened foster care system can produce poor outcomes for children and families. Serving the needs of children and families affected by substance use and misuse can be proactive.

Join the National Center for State Courts for their upcoming webinar “Strengthening Families: What Role Can Courts Play in Upstream Family Preservation?” on February 4, 2021 at 4:00–5:00 p.m. ET. This webinar will focus on helping courts strengthen their collaborative community roles to help at-risk families affected by the opioid crisis and substance use disorders prior to a petition or child welfare involvement. These preventative, upstream measures can decrease the negative impact on children and help families stay together.
