Community of Practice (COP)

The IMPACT WV program and the West Virginia Home Visitation program are partnering to launch a series of Communities of Practice (CoP) to help participants exchange technical information and share experiences about a variety of topics related to serving clients currently experiencing or who have past experiences with substance abuse. Monthly presentations share information and provide opportunities for the group to share a concern, set of problems or a passion about the topic to deepen their knowledge and expertise by interacting on an ongoing basis.

Topics have included:

  • Supporting families during COVID-19
  • Self-care
  • Stigma
  • Adaptive processes to meet high-risk families' needs
  • Non-traditional families
