Assisting staff in developing an effective case plan that insures child safety and timely reunification or permanency planning is a critical component of the supervisory role. This task is complicated when issues of substance use or abuse exist. Supervisors will be able to develop techniques to transfer knowledge and skills related to assessment, case planning, and service provision for substance abusing families to staff and other professionals. This course is designed as a supervisory level overview of case planning for families with substance abuse issues. Supervisors will learn how to assess workers' knowledge and skills related to the primary and secondary indicators of substance abuse in families and the criteria to use in assessing the effectiveness of treatment programs, assist workers in gaining/improving their knowledge and skills, and improve their own skills in assisting their workers to develop an effective case plan using the stages of addiction and the eco-map tool. This workshop focuses on supervisory level responsibilities and assumes you have the basic knowledge of AOD use and abuse. A prerequisite for this course is to have completed "533: Supervisory Skills and Knowledge Related to Substance Abuse." (Author abstract)
