CANS, CANS Booster & CANS for FFPSA Qualified Individuals/QRTP Training Events

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 Work, Counselor, Psychologist, RN/LPN, Peer, Chemical Dependency Counselor (CDCA)

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


We are excited to announce the launch of our monthly CANS Assessor Learning Community! The CANS Learning Community will
be 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
