This webinar will discuss how the stress response presents in youth when going through court proceedings and testifying and how to support them.  The goal of this presentation is to provide attorneys, judges, advocates and therapists insight into effective ways that they can transform their court processes as well as their courtrooms into trauma-informed environments.

By doing this, it will support positive outcomes for testimony and the youth’s mental health throughout the court process and long term.  This presentation is unique as it will have real-life examples from multiple professional lenses.

After more than 35 years, we remain the most comprehensive national resource committed to advancing victims’ rights and helping victims of crime rebuild their lives.

The National Center is, at its core, an advocacy organization committed to — and working on behalf of — crime victims and their families. Rather than focus the entire organization’s work on one type of crime or victim, the National Center addresses all types of crime.
