Connection: To ensure CIP COE provides top quality training and learning experiences, all participants must have their cameras on for the entire training event to attend and receive credit. The attendance and participation expectations are the same for virtual and in-person training events: no multitasking, follow along, engage, and participate in discussions and other activities, no traveling in a car or attending concurrent meetings. Note: If you join the training without your camera on, you will be removed and need to reschedule.

1. Bandwidth issues: inform your agency and make plans to access a connection that is conducive for camera-on, engaged learning.

2. Chromebook or similar devices generally complicate your connection. You will not be able to obtain chat information etc.; you will need alternative options.

3. Phoning in with audio (no video) cannot verify attendance, you will be removed from the training and unable to earn credits.

CANS AUGUST through DECEMBER 2023

OHIO CHILDREN’S INITIATIVE | CANS Assessment and TCOM Training
The Ohio Children’s Initiative CANS assessment tool has been developed for broad application across multiple systems, including youth involved in child protection, developmental disability, department of youth services, and mental health and addiction. The CANS assessment tool gathers all dimensions of the youth and family story to determine needs and strengths and integrates multiple storytellers capturing the voice of the youth and family to produce a full consensus-based assessment. This training will satisfy the Ohio live training requirement and prepare participants to take the CANS certification exam.

5.5 CEs available to: Social Workers, Counselors, Psychologists, RNs/LPNs, Chemical Dependency Counselors

*When capacity is reached and registration closed, we encourage you to check back as space sometimes opens up due to cancellations and other considerations.

CANS Assessment 102
This 3-hour training aids in identifying areas of challenges for collaborative youth and family engagements and offers guided strategies toward increasing success in this area.  It is built on the foundations from the Ohio Children’s Initiative TCOM and CANS training and the CANS Assessment 101: The Initial Assessment – Guided Conversations and Collaborations training, though neither are prerequisite for attending this training.  While the ideas and strategies are applicable to an initial CANS assessment, the greatest utility may be for those updating CANS with children/youth and their families and for Care Coordination.

CANS OFFICE HOURS and LEARNING COMMUNITY
Upcoming changes to supporting Ohio’s CANS assessors

Our monthly CANS Assessor Learning Community is a semi-structured one (1) hour monthly group learning experience. The CANS Learning Community will include a regularly scheduled 10–15-minute didactic learning session on advanced technical content that will enhance CANS assessors’ skill development. After the didactic, the group will reflect on the didactic material, engage in Q/A from the field and learn from one another! The CANS Learning Community will REPLACE one of our previously scheduled CANS Office Hours sessions. CANS Learning Community will be held the fourth Thursday of each month from 9:00-10:00 a.m. While it is not mandatory to attend every learning community session, the learning community didactic sessions do build on one another.

For those of you who appreciate popping into office hours to get a quick implementation and/or operational question
answered, we will still offer CANS Office Hours one time per month on the second Thursday of the month from 9am-10am.

Please see the schedule below for the CANS office hours registration links and our NEW CANS Learning Community schedule and registration links
