Additional Information:
Many family treatment courts (FTC) are challenged with effectively responding to participant behavior.

The complexities of supporting real behavior change and providing accountability to achieve the goals of recovery and safe parenting require a renewed mindset toward sanctions and incentives.

This Cafe Conversation will explore key considerations on responding to participant behavior and the wide range of responses available.

This will require your team to be individualistic yet fair, problem-solving and therapeutic in its approach.

FTCs will also need to consider the underlying cause of the behavior, the effect of the response on the participant's children, and the participant's engagement in treatment and supportive services.

This Cafe Conversation will highlight the most recent research and explore hot topics surrounding sanctions and incentives, such as use of jail, phase advancement, and termination.

Join us on March 28 for a Live Conversation to hear FTC professionals talk about their experiences and lessons learned in responding to participant behavior.

Numerous learning opportunities and resources will be provided to attendees to enhance learning.

First, view our pre-recorded 30-minute video presentation which will cover essential information about this topic.

A Team Discussion Guide will also available so FTC practitioners can view and discuss together.

Finally, a Take Action Guide will be provided to ensure attendees translate learning to practice.
