Attendees of this training will be given an overview of the effects of trauma, addiction, and substance use in families, explore day-to-day challenges with at-risk families, and learn practical strategies to support families and make children thrive. Professionals will increase their capacity to deliver child abuse and neglect prevention services within Southeast Ohio. Parents and caregivers will strengthen their knowledge of the protective factors to help children grow and thrive.

Who Should Attend?

  1. Child/family-serving professionals such as school faculty/staff, childcare providers, health care providers, mental/behavioral health, judicial, other frontline professionals.
  2. Parents and Caregivers, including grandparents and other kinship families.
