Enhanced Care Coordination: Helping Children, Youth, and Families Impacted by Substance Misuse

Sponsor: New Hampshire Alcohol & Drug Abuse Counselors Association

PRESENTATION:This 6-hour course will provide participants with an introduction to person-centered, enhanced care coordination (ECC), with a specific emphasis on families impacted by substance misuse and co-occurring challenges.  Unlike case management, ECC is a facilitated process where the coordinator partners with clients based on foundational principles such as person-centeredness, strengths-based care, and resilience. This course will use a mix of lecture, demonstration, video, and small group activities.

Upon completion of this training, participants will be able to:

  • List at least 3 techniques to engage the child, youth, and family/caregiver;
  • Demonstrate how to work effectively with natural family support networks and peer supporters;
  • Describe the unique developmental needs young children and youth who have experienced trauma and who have emotional or behavioral challenges; and
  • Demonstrate cultural humility; describe structural inequality and implicit bias.
