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.
