abusive use of drugs and alcohol in society has a major impact on the
emotional, physical and financial health of families and communities across the
country. Many of these families struggle with what to do and how to do what
needs to be done. This one-day training will provide coordinators with a
workable knowledge of substance abuse and family dynamics to enable coordinators
to safely and effectively engage families while simultaneously safeguarding the
FGDM process. Coordinators will understand how to prepare families for creating
plans and identifying supports to help address this very challenging issue.
Participants will be encouraged to think creatively to accommodate specific
family circumstances and needs.
At the end of this training participants will be able to:
- Identify the basic dynamics of substance
abuse and their interplay with FGDM values and processes
- Describe strategies to shepherd the
process forward, particularly when enabling behavior is
- Assess an individual family’s needs so
that specialized presenters may be invited to address the specific types
of substance abuse affecting the family
