Please join the Children's Commission this Friday, June 5, 2020 from 12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m. CST for a webcast entitled “Benefits of Using Technology in Child Welfare Cases.” This webcast is designed for judges who preside on the CPS docket and will be of interest to attorneys and other advocates as well.
Topics covered will include how to manage dockets and find an interpreter; greater child and parent engagement; the advantages of virtual mediation; an increase in attorney participation and preparation; and the benefits of increased frequency of family time (also known as visitation). Viewers will learn about how all of these technological benefits can be used to advance permanency for children in care. Additionally, a demonstration will be included on how judges can access an interpreter for certain child welfare hearings.
MCLE has been requested from the State Bar of Texas. Registration for the live webcast is limited to 500 people.
