Children and Family Futures, Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Training and Technical Assistance Program invites you to participate in the Learning Academy Webinar series. The FDC Learning Academy offers web-based training events to assess the needs, implement program improvements, evaluate performance, and sustain FDC programs. The Learning Academy consists of three learning stages or “Learning Communities” - Planning Community, Early Implementation, and Enhanced Community.
Children exposed to parental substance abuse, prenatal as well as environmental, are at much greater risk of poor developmental outcomes as well as social, emotional and behavioral concerns. Family Drug Courts (FDCs) are unique in that they have the ability to address the needs of both the parents and the child, thus healing the entire family. This webinar will explore the critical issues surrounding this area of service delivery and will offer a comprehensive intervention framework that addresses all stages of development beginning with pre-pregnancy prevention, prenatal and postnatal intervention and support for affected children throughout childhood and adolescence. The webinar will include renowned guest panelists, Ira J. Chasnoff, MD (Chicago, Illinois) and Judge Erica Yew (Santa Clara County Superior Court, California) who will draw from their own unique and expert medical and judicial perspectives.
