I had to detain 3 children out of a home that was raided by the narcotics task force. I was in a similar situation that I wanted to stay and help the mother, but lack the clinical skills as well. This particular mother does not use or sell drugs but her spouse did both. Both parents were arrested. I felt like I wanted to talk to the mom, safety plan with her or something. I understand that she is responsible for the safety and the well-being of her children, but I can’t help but to think how hard it would be to get out of that situation. I agree that the lack of clinical skills in child welfare speaks volumes. I think we would better serve families of this community if we all had those skills.
