Conversation Guide for Professionals on Substance Use, Children, & Families Training
January 21 @ 8:30 am - 12:30 pm
The Substance Use Conversation Guide is a tool for professionals that provides direction on strengths-based conversations with families on substances and substance use, including sections on safe storage, safe and engaged caregiving, and the Protective Factors. Safe storage bags, family handouts – available in both English & Spanish – accompany the Conversation Guide to support professionals in starting and continuing these conversations. This training addresses the concepts found in the Conversation Guide, and also explores stigma, bias, boundaries, screening tools, and resource/referral options. Following training, participants will have access to all materials and ongoing consultation and support from Illuminate Colorado.
