Methamphetamine: The Child Welfare Impact and Promising Practices
The session intent is to provide information on recent trends in methamphetamine
use and characteristics of methamphetamine users that impact child
welfare practice, highlighting the implications of women's increased use of
methamphetamine together with the clinical profile of women seeking treatment.
In addition, the presenter addresses the implications of methamphetamine
and other drugs of abuse on child welfare systems, including risk and safety
factors for families and practitioners; reviews information on the various ways in
which children are affected by parental methamphetamine use and the differential
risk factors involved for these families; and reports recent research findings
from treatment outcome studies focused on methamphetamine, illustrating with
evidence-based practices and intervention on the part of child welfare workers.
