Featured Session

Walk a Mile in Their Shoes: The Children's Counsel Experiential Learning Module

Youth involved in the child welfare or juvenile justice court process frequently travel through myriad public systems. Furthermore, many of these youth have experienced high levels of trauma, violence, instability, and loss. This session uses experiential learning to increase understanding and awareness. Using integrative teaching and simulations, we will explore what it is like to be a young person with court involvement. We will discuss best practices in child advocacy models and examine methods for screening, intake, and representation, with a focus on the experience of youth moving through various services and systems.  

This is an interactive session which will involve group discussions and moving about the room. Space is limited! Please RSVP for this session here.
