Thousands of children in the foster care system continue to need quality foster care and adoptive parents to achieve permanency. Although the need for more foster and adoptive parents is ever present, the stress of caring for special needs children and a lack of support make many foster and adoptive homes unstable. Case management professionals in the child welfare system play an important role in supporting foster and adoptive parents. By effectively communicating with foster and adoptive parents and making them feel valued, case management professionals can encourage those who feel overwhelmed while also making them an important part of the larger foster care system. Through targeted service provision and after care services, case management professionals are able to provide the resources needed to strengthen and preserve foster and adoptive families. This course provides an overview of how to strengthen foster and adoptive families. This overview will explore the barriers to successful adoptions in foster care and discuss resources that can strengthen and preserve adoptive and foster families in order to ensure permanency for children in the child welfare system.

Substance use is believed to be particularly high among individuals who suffer from anxiety disorders, which is attributed to a belief that drug and alcohol use reduces anxiety and tension. Furthermore, there is a belief that a reciprocal, causal relationship exists between anxiety and substance abuse over time due to the positive relationship between anxiety disorders and alcohol dependence (Doughty & Hunt, 1999) (ADAA, 2015) (Lingford-Hughes, Potokar & Nutt, 2002). Because individuals who suffer from anxiety disorders are more likely to self-medicate with alcohol and/or illicit drugs, treating co-occurring anxiety and substance abuse has been a challenge for behavioral health professionals. In addition, co-occurring anxiety and substance abuse also has a high possibility of relapse. An integrated approach with relapse prevention may be the most effective treatment for co-occurring anxiety and substance dependence. Behavioral health professionals need to be trained to effectively provide the treatment approaches to make integrated programs successful. This course will explore what anxiety disorders are before taking an in-depth look at the relationship between substance abuse and anxiety. Also discussed are evidence based practices proven effective for individuals with both an anxiety disorder and substance dependence.

An increasing number of grandparents find themselves as the primary caregivers for one or more of their grandchildren. While sometimes temporary guardians, about 10% of grandparents will provide care for their grandchildren for at least six months, and many of those will become sole guardians. While grandparents provide kinship care when a child is involved with the child welfare system, many older adults have challenges providing a stable home for the children in their care. Grandparents raising grandchildren either on a temporary or more permanent basis require supportive services for the diverse and often unexpected needs of children in their care. Foster care professionals are the primary source for connecting families with the needed financial, respite, mental health, and other support needs that may arise. This course will explore the data surrounding the increasing numbers of custodial grandparents (older caregivers) in the U.S. and the challenges facing this population. This course will also explore the needs of older caregivers involved with the foster care system and the necessary supports available for them to provide the necessary tools for stabilizing children and adolescents in their homes.
