Webinar-Increasing the Effectiveness of Parenting Interventions with Substance-Involved Parents
Approximately 70 million children and adolescents live with at least one parent who abuses alcohol or other substances or has a diagnosable substance use disorder (SUD). Given the negative parenting practices that substance-involved mothers and fathers tend to exhibit as well as the poor outcomes for their children, staff working with substance-involved parents need to be aware of and utilize the most promising parenting practices and interventions. During the webinar new findings in neurobiology that can be used to increase effectiveness of parent-child interactions will be discussed. Additionally, participants will learn the most common threats to safe parenting that occur among parents with complex substance-involved histories as well as evidence-based practices and interventions to implement with substance-involved families with young children.
