July 9: Project FAIR (Families Achieving Independence through Recovery); How One Program Links Human Services Workers to AOD Prevention, Treatment & Recovery Services for Families

During their day-to-day activities, social workers must make important decisions affecting families in which one or more members appear to have substance abuse issues. This collaborative effort provides them with critical information about the impact of substance abuse on individuals, families and especially vulnerable children as well as streamlined access to prevention, treatment, and recovery services. This workshop will provide an overview of the program including screening and referral procedures; legal issues that must be considered; and prevention strategies used to promote family unification and/or reunification.

May 21 (Kalamazoo), August 14 (Dearborn): "Using the Yellow Book to Improve Practice"

Five of these sessions, which feature the “Yellow Book,” Guidelines for Achieving Permanency in Child Protective Services Proceedings,” were held in 2008. The quality and value of this training was of such significance that the funding source, the Governor’s Task Force on Children’s Justice, has scheduled repeat sessions for 2009. There is no charge to attend; registrations must be received by May 6 and August 1, respectively.
