Advanced Practice Community
The Advanced Practice Community will explore an array of specialized topics to raise the level of effective practice within FDC teams. The eight (8) webinar presentations will draw from a wide range of perspectives and experiences of FDC professionals nationwide. Topics will include judicial leadership, FDC models, evidence-based parenting and effective treatment, trauma-informed court, and sustainability. The goal of each presentation is to expand the breadth and depth of discussion, so that FDC Teams are better equipped to meet the unique implementation and practice needs in their own jurisdictions while adhering to evidence informed practices.
