March 9, 2016

Please join the National Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges (NCJFCJ) for the FREE three-part webinar series to the Three-Prong Approach to Incentives and Sanctions. This webinar series is presented by the NCJFCJ's Juvenile Drug Court Information Center

The 1st Prong - Implementing the Most Valued Privilege 
 
As a training and technical assistance provider working with juvenile drug courts, the NCJFCJ has observed two ways that juvenile drug court teams respond to drug test results. This webinar training will explore the Most Valued Privilege (MV) in your juvenile drug court. We will discuss and learn about ways to:
  • focus on the court's response to positive or negative drug tests, 
  • gain compliance over a single behavior, 
  • implement the MVP. 
This workshop is a web- and telephone-based training and you will need to have access to BOTH a computer and a telephone. 
 
Date: Wednesday, March 23, 2016
Time: 10:30 a.m. Pacific Daylight (PDT) 
 

The 2nd Prong - Implementing Youth Contracts
 
Teams are encouraged to develop a contract system that uses individualized youth contracts to reward and motivate positive behavior change areas such as school attendance, family connectedness, and community involvement. This webinar training will explore implementing youth contracts in your juvenile drug court. We will discuss and learn about ways to:
  • develop a step-by-step process for youth to follow, 
  • get youth working towards "things" they are really interested in, 
  • set goals to help accomplish what is set in a case plan. 
This workshop is a web- and telephone-based training and you will need to have access to BOTH a computer and a telephone.

The 3rd Prong - Program Wide Incentives 
 
The 3rd Prong creates a strength-based atmosphere for the team. This webinar will explore program-wide incentives in your juvenile drug court. We will discuss and learn about ways to:  
  • motivate family to engage in the program,
  • positive peer-to-peer reinforcement,
  • upward phase movement.
This workshop is a web- and telephone-based training and you will need to have access to BOTH a computer and a telephone.
