The Fall 2019 CPPC Statewide Learning Network Convening will focus on educating and leading CPPC sites in identifying new ways to support families in their communities that are experiencing substance use treatment and recovery. Featuring keynote speaker Russ Bermejo with Children and Family Futures, Mr. Bermejo will share emerging national perspectives on the intersection of child welfare practice and substance use, as well as collaborative models of intervention and recovery.
Attendees will hear perspectives from local professionals in the field and parents with lived experience as they discuss policy and practice happening in Iowa, as well as strategies for communities to support families in recovery.
