Providers, organizations, and communities need to arm themselves with tools and knowledge for reducing and preventing substance use disorder among the most fragile members of society. In collaboration with the Opioid Response Network and the New England Region 1 Mental Health Technology Transfer Center, CCSME is offering this two-part series to address the relationships between infant and adolescent trauma, and the risk and potential for a substance use disorder outcome. Participants in this webinar will be able to name ways addiction impacts the maternal and infant brain, identify prevention strategies, describe the significance of attachment parenting to promote infant resilience, and discuss the risk of inherited genetics. You may register twice to complete the full two-part series or sign-up once for the program of your choice. You may learn more and register for Part 2 HERE
