Date: December 14, 2021 | Length: 1:23:10
This live webinar hosted by the National Center on Substance Abuse and Child Welfare (NCSACW) is the first of a three-part Learning Exchange Series to explore Brief 1 of the How States Serve Infants and their Families Affected by Prenatal Substance Exposure TA briefs. Summarizes steps states have taken to implement the 2016 Comprehensive Addiction and Recovery Act (CARA) amendments to the Child Abuse and Prevention Treatment Act (CAPTA). Amendments focus on changes to state statutes, establishing a difference between notification and reporting to child protective services (CPS), and developing shared definitions to identify and serve these families. Features eight subject matter experts who discuss their state’s policies and practices on: 1) defining an infant affected by prenatal substance exposure, and 2) implementing a distinct notification pathway to child protective services by health care providers involved in the delivery or care of such infants.
