This webinar, presented by the CSG Justice Center, features practical approaches to increasing and improving family engagement and involvement in the juvenile justice system. With support from the MacArthur Foundation, the National Center for Mental Health and Juvenile Justice has worked with a number of sites across the country through the Mental Health/Juvenile Justice Action Network to develop and implement model approaches aimed at empowering families, training juvenile justice staff, and modifying policies to support families of youth involved with the juvenile justice system. Highlights of this work include developing curricula for juvenile justice staff, creating a “Family Bill of Rights,” and revising state and local laws and policies. Model approaches from Pennsylvania and Texas, two states that participated in this effort, are presented in this webinar.
