*Approved course for CEU Social Work Licensure. For a complete list of courses approved for CEU's, please visit the following page: CEU's for Social Work Licensure

The Oklahoma Child Welfare Behavioral Health: Mental Health and Substance Use Disorders training provides information about mental health and substance use disorders and supports the practice of skills that are helpful in working with families. This training is designed for two purposes: 1) to build foundational skills to enable crucial conversations with families regarding the safety and protection of children affected by mental health, substance use, or co-occurring disorders in the home, and 2) to teach Child Welfare Specialists (CWS) how to build effective partnerships with the Oklahoma Child Welfare and Behavioral Health systems. The information learned from the SAMHSA National Center on Substance Abuse and Child Welfare online curriculum, Understanding Substance Use Disorders, Treatment, and Family Recovery: A Guide for Child Welfare Professionals is expanded in this training through discussions of Oklahoma-based behavioral health interventions, policies, procedures, and through active applications that will assist CWSs in collaborating with families to address their behavioral health issues.
