Registration link pending. Check back next week. Judges issue orders designed to address disputes between litigants.

Sometimes orders involve routine matters, such as rent and possession. Other times orders are designed to provide stability and safety in regard to cases involving child custody and visitation. No matter what the case type, Judges are aware that many of the issues presented are related to the use and abuse of substances and mental health. By developing a basic understanding of the science behind behavioral interventions, Judges may be able to tailor orders that more effectively address behaviors that are disruptive to the individual and members of the community.

What will I learn?

During this course, you will learn to:

  • Identify principles of changing behaviors driven by substance use disorder;
  • Examine what information is needed in order to tailor court orders and expectations;
  • Develop realistic expectations regarding each individual’s ability to comply with court orders and long-term expectations; and
  • Cite principles and techniques designed to motivate change and sustain long term change.

This webinar is number two in a 16-part webinar series entitled What Judges Need to Know About Substance Use Disorders. Substance Use Disorders (SUD) are on the rise in America and are increasingly appearing in the courtroom no matter the case type. SUD not only impacts the individual suffering from it directly, it can negatively impact those who interact with them. Throughout this sixteen-part webinar series, judges will identify the neuroscience of underlying Substance Use Disorder, explore the science of specific substances that are used and abused including their effects on the brain and signs of impairment, identify skills to be applied in order to be more effective in dealing with SUDs in the courtroom, and explore the Judge’s role in problem solving, advocacy, and building community resources.
