The 2016 Child Welfare League of America (CWLA)National Conference is dedicated entirely to the critical topic of substance use and its affects on children, youth, and families involved with child welfare. Substance use has a significant impact on all child welfare practice areas. It is a major reason that children come into the child welfare system and have trouble returning home. The purpose of this conference is to create national awareness through shared knowledge and to promote multidisciplinary collaborative advances in best practices, research, and policy that lead to improving the outcomes and increased well-being for this population of children, youth, and families.
