Webinar: Trauma-Responsive Virtual and Hybrid Safe Baby Courts

Trauma-informed and trauma-responsive practices for virtual courts continue to be critical tools in any court professional’s toolbox. For this session, we will share three different versions of how Safe Baby courts can ensure parents and younger children feel comfortable on the virtual platform, how they can help parents and children feel safe and heard during hybrid or virtual hearings, and how they can promote positive family time and interactions virtually. By the end of this session, attendees will be equipped with an array of trauma-responsive practices that they can apply to their Safe Baby courts.
