Building relationships with parents living with substance use disorder (SUD) and their children who have experienced prenatal exposure can often be challenging. The Touchpoints Approach is an evidence-based, relational practice that builds collaborative family-provider partnerships in service of strong, healthy family-child relationships from before birth throughout early childhood. If you work with young children and families who live in the context of SUD, this professional development offering will introduce you to concrete strengths-based and relational strategies you can use to support yourself and the families with whom you work.
What you will learn:
- Key concepts essential to understanding substance use disorder as a medical disease
- How to apply a developmental and relational framework to your work with families of young children in which the parents are living with substance use disorder
- Strategies for applying a strengths-based mindset to supporting yourself, children, and families affected by the substance use and recovery process
