The NCJFCJ Congratulates Judge Michael Nash On His Retirement


Judge Michael Nash was appointed to the Los Angeles Municipal Court in 1989; and in 1989 he was elevated to the Los Angeles Superior Court and has served in the juvenile court since 1990.

Trauma-informed judges take gentler approach, administer problem-solving justice to stop cycle of adverse childhood experiences


For a more trauma-informed system of care, juvenile courts and their judges are asked to understand the myriad of underlying factors that affect the lives of juveniles and their families. One of the most pervasive of these factors is exposure to trauma. To be most effective in achieving its mission, the juvenile court must both understand the role of traumatic exposure in the lives of children and engage resources and interventions that address child traumatic stress.

Project ONE Key Principles

The NCJFCJ continues to be a leader in advancing the use of effective multi-system responses to youth and families. In 2010, with funding from the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention to support critical cross-departmental and cross-system work, the NCJFCJ began work on the Multi-Court Collaboration (MCC) Initiative (now known as Project ONE, named to signify a holistic approach to families through One Family/One Judge, No Wrong Door, and Equal and Coordinated Access to Justice).
