Guide to Trauma Consultation in Juvenile and Family Courts Now Available Preparing for a Trauma Consultation in Your Juvenile and Family Court

April 15, 2015

The National Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges has released “Preparing for a Trauma Consultation in Your Juvenile and Family Court.” This OJJDP-funded guide highlights trauma consultation and how it can help juvenile and family courts become more trauma-informed across environment, practice, and policy. The guide outlines a conceptual and basic operational framework for trauma-informed courts, including positioning them as stakeholders in the community. The publication is a living document that will be updated with lessons learned and advances in the field as they develop.
