A new resource has been developed for court staff to help them better serve the community. January is National Human Trafficking Prevention Month, and the National Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges is providing an eight-part webinar.
This program ensures judges can go beyond the surface of youth behaviors and understand what is best for youth. The Resource Center for Courts on Child Sex Trafficking will provide skills for judges to learn as well as prepare court systems to be trauma-responsive to these situations.
Cheri Ely, Program Director of Juvenile Justice, NCJFCJ, mentioned how this program makes a difference for communities nationwide. Watch the segment.
