I will be facilitating four regional networking sessions across Canada later this month for Connections, a knowledge exchange network for agencies serving women with substance abuse issues.
“The goal of Connections research is to improve services for women with substance use issues and their children in Canada. Children born to women who used substances during pregnancy are at greater risk for health and developmental problems. Women who continue to use substances after childbirth may have diminished capacity for parenting and have their own social and health problems” (from the Connections web site).
If you work in the substance abuse field, and particularly with women, check out the Connections web site and watch for us in St. John’s, Ottawa, Saskatoon and Vancouver.
