In this webcast, hosted by the National AIA Resource Center, representatives from four federally funded demonstration projects share their experiences developing policies and procedures to meet the federal Child Abuse Prevention and Treatment Act (CAPTA) mandates related to substance exposed newborns (SEN). Specifically, the presenters discuss challenges they have encountered in multidisciplinary collaboration, and strategies they have employed to overcome those challenges.

This webcast is 2 hours long but the nice thing about a webcast is you can elect to watch for as much time as you have and come back. The speakers cover so much information it’s almost too much to absorb at one time. CAPTA (Child Abuse Prevention and Treatment Act) covers only illegal substances but several of the demonstration projects include all substances – alcohol, tobacco, and prescription drugs.
