Drugs of Abuse and Drug Endangered Children

Training and Technical Assistance

ESTABLISHING A STRENGTH BASED TRIBAL COLLABORATION FOR DRUG ENDANGERED CHILDREN 

Identifying children at risk for child abuse and neglect is a key feature of community-based interventions. Assuring the use of culturally appropriate assessment tools and integrating best practice in child welfare are both critical in protecting this at-risk population. Through the use of the NICWA Relational Worldview, participants will be able to assess areas of strength and opportunity for the optimal collaboration in protecting our greatest resource- our children. Tools and resource links will be provided that can be used across programs to support mutual values.
