The Girls Coalition is reimagining our annual conference this year and is committed to sharing a number of mini-conferences that allow participants to take more in-depth look at one issue--to learn more, better apply information to their own work, and find ways to collaborate with local and regional partners. Please stay tuned for announcements about the remaining sessions for 2014.
THE UNIQUE NEEDS OF GIRLS IN THE JUVENILE JUSTICE SYSTEM
This half-day training will take an in-depth look at the realities that many girls face in the juvenile justice system today and will consider a range of topics related to this issue from a girl's first involvement in the system through effective, evidence-based intervention models currently used by practitioners in the field. Attendees will have the opportunity to gain greater insight and clarity on the steps that a girl goes through when involved in the system, and programming used for prevention and intervention including:
- Services offered by the court (both mandatory and voluntary)
- Foster and group home living options
- Understanding personal trauma / trauma-informed care
- Individual and family treatment models
- Effective partnerships in assessment, treatment, and anger management programs.
Presenters for this training will include Ingrid Edwards, Program Director from Gwen's Girls as well as representatives from juvenile court and CYF.
