Tutorial 1: Understanding Child Welfare and the Dependency Court: A Guide for Substance Abuse Treatment Professionals
This online course is designed to provide comprehensive information regarding child welfare issues for the substance abuse treatment professional. The course is interactive. As you progress through the modules, you will find links to worksheets, pop-up questions, case studies, and information boxes to support your learning experience. You may customize the tutorial by selecting the Learn More links throughout the course, which provide further content on specific topics. The Resources section provides an array of Websites, publications, and other sources on child welfare and substance abuse issues. We encourage you to find out more about areas of interest and relevance to your client casework through these features.
This course is divided into five modules. We recommend that you begin with Module One and work your way through Module Five, since each module builds on the previous one. Completion of all five modules will take approximately four hours. However, you will be able to stop the course and come back to where you left off at a later time, if so desired. After completing Module Five, please take the knowledge assessment. After achieving success on the exam, you will be able to print a certificate of completion. This certificate can be submitted to the National Association of Alcoholism & Drug Abuse Counselors (NADAC) for four (4) Continuing Education Units (CEUs).
