The national opioid public health crisis continues to impact families across the United States, and for some families, this can result in involvement with child welfare systems. These transitions in care often create significant gaps in our ability to understand the long term impacts of opioid use on future generations. This 1.5 day workshop is designed to promote collaboration between child and family development researchers and the child welfare service delivery system to help close this gap. Speakers from the child welfare policy, practice, and research communities (and other relevant scholars) will deliver several presentations to an audience of child and family researchers supported by the National Institutes of Health, as well as other federal, state, and community organizations.
