Webinar Recording: A Look Inside Adolescent Drug Courts: Motivation and Beyond

Recorded September 8, 2021

Hosted by: David Prescott
Guest Speakers: Jennifer Wyatt and Margaret Soukup

This webinar will explore the evolution of juvenile drug treatment courts. Where the legal system has too failed many who enter it, practices that focus on client engagement and behavior change (such as Motivational Interviewing) have improved outcomes. Jennifer Wyatt and Margaret Soukup are the authors of Motivational Interviewing Skills in Action for Juvenile Drug Treatment Court Teams and will share highlights from that publication that are specific to youth and applicable to other settings. Attendees will receive a download of this document. This webinar is for you if you have ever wondered what to do when the youth in front of you only seems to say, “I don’t know.”
