Project SCOPE National Training Initiative
Supporting Children of the OPioid Epidemic (SCOPE)
Project SCOPE, Supporting Children of the OPioid Epidemic, is a national initiative to train interdisciplinary teams on emerging knowledge and evidence-based practices in screening, monitoring, and providing collaborative care for children impacted by Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome (NAS) or Neonatal Opioid Withdrawal Syndrome (NOWS), or who are suspected of being impacted by opioid use, trauma, or related exposure.
The Institute for Human Development was awarded a grant to organize and lead a series of trainings for practitioners, clinicians, therapists, home visitors, Head Start staff, counselors, families, and individuals interested in learning more about supports for children exposed to substance use. IHD hosted three training series comprised of eight sessions each utilizing the Extension of Community Health Outcomes (ECHO) model (see below for more information).The trainings focused on how to support families and their children from birth to three years of age, ranging in topic from specific areas of development to having difficult conversations with families. The trainings will serve as a foundation for building a community of receiving and sharing resources within Arizona.
If you or your organization is interested in collaborating with IHD to provide training or information regarding how to support children who have been exposed to substance use, please contact Sara.Clancey@nau.edu or Nicole.Rambeau@nau.edu.
