New Legal Resources for Incorporating the Family First Act into Your Practice in 2020

New Legal Resources for Incorporating the Family First Act into Your Practice in 2020 

In Fall 2019, more provisions of the Family First Prevention Services Act became effective in states across the country. This webinar will highlight two new resources: a Family First Legal Guide and a Tool for Engaging the Legal Community in Family First Implementation. The Legal Guide is written for attorneys, judges, magistrates, and court personnel, and provides an overview about how the Family First Act changes federal child welfare law, identifies opportunities to use the Act in legal advocacy and judicial decision-making, and offers guidance on supporting effective  implementation in local communities. The Tool for Engaging the Legal Community can facilitate dialogue between child welfare agency implementation teams and the legal community to address potential unintended consequences and maximize positive impact for children and families. Learn more about these tools and ways to access opportunities available under the Family First Act.

People with a developmental disabilities deserve to learn about their physical, emotional, and social growth as it relates to their sexual development.  They should have freedom to ask questions and be supported to learn in an environment that is non-judgmental, free of fear, shame, and exploitation. This will be an open and honest discussion about sexuality and supporting your family member or the person you support to feel safe.

Don't Forget About All of Me

Don't Forget About All of Me Webinar

Wednesday, May 20, 2020 — 1:00 p.m.-2:30 p.m. EDT
As Americans work to adjust to life amid the COVID-19 pandemic, the links between social determinants of health (SDoH), access to health care, and overall physical and behavioral health outcomes become all too clear. Those served by the child welfare system who have already experienced trauma face additional trauma exposure due to SDoH issues such as food insecurity, disruption to their typical school routine and social isolation. This webinar will explore how SDoH may lead to health disparities and health inequities. Presenters will also describe the responsibility of Managed Care Organizations (MCOs) to address SDoH barriers as part of their overall strategy for improving health care outcomes, particularly during this pandemic.
