National Abandoned Infants Assistance Resource Center Webinar Series
Before closing its doors after 25 years on September 29, 2016, The National Abandoned Infants Assistance Resource Center (AIA) hosted a 2-day webinar series that focused on lessons learned from AIA grantees. AIA grantees shared their findings from working with young families affected by substance use and/or HIV. Each webinar highlights the practices grantees developed and/or implemented to promote the safety, permanency, and well-being of children, and the health and stability of families impacted by substance use and/or HIV.
The agendas topics for each day were as follows:
- "The Power of Peer Support for Pregnant and Parenting Women Affected by Substance Use"
- "Supporting Strength and Strengthening Support: Minimizing Child Welfare Involvement for Substance Exposed Newborns and Their Families"
- "Better Together: Lessons Learned From Collaboration"
- "Families Growing Together: Integrating Evidence-Based Interventions and Direct Practice"
- "Practicing Safety Mindfulness Project for Mothers in Drug Treatment: Adapting Interventions in a Clinical Setting"
- "Family 2 Matters: Lessons Learned From Supporting Families in a ‘Judgement-Free Zone"
