Today more families are being impacted by the use of substances. As a direct result, children are being raised on households in which substance use has led to secondary experiences, such as abuse, neglect and trauma.  This training will explore the implications for children being raised in households where substance use occurs. Additionally this training will focus on the ability for families to heal and empower themselves during the recovery process, highlighting the resiliency of families.  The training will also explore childhood behaviors often associated with having been impacted by substance use, as well as ways to create a trauma informed approach to help address concerns of the children and their families.

Learning Objectives:

  • To identify the roles within a family system impacted by SUD
  • To understand the Recovery process for a family
  • To develop a theoretical understanding of how to empower the family system to help children understand the disease of addiction, including a trauma informed lens
  • Describe different strategies to engage families in treatment and help organize them to the journey of healing and recovery
  • Conduct 3 different therapeutic interventions aimed at healing the symptoms of SUD and engage the families in recovery process
