Trauma-Informed Treatment Courts
May 7, 2020 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Research has drawn strong correlations between trauma and substance use disorders, raising the issue of what our treatment courts can do to be trauma-informed. In this 1.5 hour webinar, Judge Shaun Floerke and Dr. Chris Wilson will set the stage for participants with a brief overview of the impact of trauma on the brain, from both a neuropsychological and evolutionary perspective, and then provide several concrete ways a treatment court team can be trauma informed. The focus of the 90 minutes will be on the practical implementation of the science.
1. Participants will be able to explain three ways trauma affects the brain.
2. Participants will be able to explain the impact facial expression and tone can have on the brain.
3. Participants will learn ten concrete ways to make their court trauma informed.
