Panel Discussion on Substance Abuse and Child Welfare: Improving Systems through Collaboration

July 14 @ 1:30 pm - 3:00 pm

Catalysts for change exist at all levels of social service, health, and court systems—from state-level leaders to local agency directors. Sustaining practice and policy changes require local implementation efforts that in turn rely on state support.

The panel will examine how sustaining system-level change: 1) maximizes implementation efforts, and 2) ensures programs remain effectively and equitably delivered and sustained—from the top down and bottom up. These lessons stem from specialized technical assistance programs: In-Depth Technical Assistance (IDTA) and Regional Partnership Grant (RPG).

Learning objectives include:

• Understand how to make change at the local and state levels
• Identify practice-level strategies necessary to create systems-level change
• Build collaborative capacity with partner agencies and systems
• Engage strong leadership to assure collaboratives develop mutually defined goals, make lasting practice changes, and mitigate systemic barriers to improve outcomes for children and families
