Journal Issue Focuses on Child Welfare and Substance Use
In October 2015, the Child Welfare League of America (CWLA) released a two-volume special issue of Child Welfare dedicated to families in child welfare affected by substance use. Article topics include cross-system collaboration, family drug court program compliance, peer mentoring, intensive family preservation services, and others. This new issue is an update from the 2001 special issue that focused on parental substance use disorders among families in child welfare. The 2015 special issue of Child Welfare, Vol. 94, Nos. 4 and 5, can be purchased at https://netforum.avectra.com/eweb/shopping/shopping.aspx?site=cwla&webcode=shopping&cart=0&shopsearch=journal&msm=7ecec0b8-3ddc-4a0c-b5b7-8e84736c7918&cst=3ad2c219-29c8-46e3-944d-106f8a54f74e&ent=6e7dfa89-f5a7-403b-8082-d182a9d369af.
CWLA's 2016 national conference is also dedicated to the confluence of child welfare and substance use. For more information about the conference, which will be held August 1–3 in Orange County, CA, visit the CWLA website at http://www.cwla.org/substanceuseconference/.
