Navigating DCYF Training for Community Health Teams

  • 21 Oct 2020

Through our contract with the Medical Legal Partnership of Boston (MLPB), on September 8th, Community Health Teams (CHTs) participated in a training: “Navigating DCYF in General - and as a Family Impacted by SUD”. In this webinar, CHTs were able to better understand the DCYF intake and investigation process and identify the unique barriers and challenges for families impacted by substance use disorders in navigating the system. Jeannine Casselman, JD articulated how CHTs could apply advocacy strategies in partnership with individuals and families involved with DCYF. MLPB provided multiple resources and Community Health Workers were able to receive a completion certificate which could go toward their CHW certification.
