Supervisors will learn how to assess a worker's knowledge and skills related to 1) terms and concepts related to addiction, 2) psychological, physiological, and sociological impact of addiction, and 3) the stages of addiction and change. Upon assessment, supervisors will be able to assist workers in gaining/improving their knowledge and skills in working with families in AOD use/abuse. Supervisors will also learn the questions to ask a worker to insure their staff is providing an accurate child safety assessment. (Author abstract)
