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).
