Dispositions in A/N/D Court: Structuring Court Ordered Plans

This course focuses on dispositional orders that are entered in an abuse, neglect, or dependency action for respondent parents. The objectives are for judges to understand the respondents’ experiences in meeting expectations and learn how to enter orders that are designed to allow a parent to succeed so that reunification is more likely to be achieved. This multiday course requires judges to complete exercises in their home jurisdiction as well as participate in online programming and will take place over the course of one week. Attendees will complete a simulated experience in working a dispositional case plan. There will be large and small group discussion so experiences and expertise may be shared with judicial peers. Because of the high level of interaction required for this course, attendance is limited to 20. Priority will be given to judges who have juvenile court certification and who are seeking advanced child welfare certification.

This course is required for advanced child welfare certification.
