Many of us are working day in and day out with people with opioid use disorder, their families and our impacted communities.

The work can be overwhelming and the resources scarce. Research has increasingly illustrated the connections between burnout and bias, ethics, fairness and our effectiveness as judges. If we are not mindfully engaged in wellness and renewal we can suffer increased bias and become less effective thereby energizing a vicious cycle. In this session you will learn techniques and strategies that are grounded in research that you can use to increase your awareness and your resilience.

Presented by Hon. Shaun Floerke & Dr. Melissa Piasecki

Opioid Use Disorder and the Courts: Protecting Children & Supporting Families
A Five-Part Webinar Series for Judges

Beginning December 1, 2020 / Time: 11:00 a.m. Pacific / Duration: 60 minutes

In addition to the impact of opioid abuse on criminal courts, the nation’s family and juvenile courts are also being deeply impacted by the opioid crisis. This series of five 60-minute webinars will educate judges on identification & early intervention strategies in cases that involve children of parents with opioid abuse disorder as well as identify techniques for judges presiding over such cases to combat secondary trauma, which can lead to implicit bias.

This webinar series is being presented through generous funding from the State Justice Institute (SJI) in conjunction with The National Judicial College (NJC).
