This presentation will provide an overview of current research on clinical care for Substance Exposed Newborns (SEN) and their families, including (a) information about what supports families need early in development and ongoing; (b) evidence-based treatments for SEN infants and their families; and (c) building supportive connections for families by utilizing both knowledge of key areas of infant development with a specific focus on fostering healthy sleep and providing support within the context of trauma-informed interventions and care.
