Each monthly webinar is brought to you FREE of charge.
High conflict cases in the courtroom, by their nature, require judicial officers to have a flexible nervous system. When the impact of multiple nervous systems fueling dueling agendas is taken into consideration, it can become easier to manage the complexities in the room. Ideally, participants will have attended Dr. Bailey’s October 9 session on polyvagal principles. However, the principles of polyvagal concepts will be reintroduced and explained briefly.
