This webinar was the third of six modules in the Planning Community of the Learning Academy Series.  The Planning Community seeks to provide the necessary framework for a multi-disciplinary team to develop, implement and sustain a Family Drug Court.

This module further explored the Screening and Assessment for Family Engagement, Retention and Recovery (SAFERR) Model as presented in module two.  It included a discussion from both micro and macro level practitioners on screening and assessment issues frequently encountered by Family Drug Courts. Strategies to address frequently encountered barriers to developing a comprehensive screening and assessment protocol were also presented.
