Tuesday, March 15, 2016
The Robert F. Kennedy National Resource Center for Juvenile Justice, led by Robert F. Kennedy Children’s Action Corps is pleased to announce the availability of a new online course for attorneys. The course, Information Sharing in Youth and Family Serving Systems, provides attorneys (juvenile defenders, minor’s attorneys, prosecutors, agency legal counsel) and juvenile court judges with guidance on several critical topics relevant to understanding the complex issue of information sharing.
The course utilizes video presentations from expert faculty and practitioners, interactive scenarios, practice games, and assessments to explore:
- how sharing information can contribute to improved outcomes for youth, families, and systems;
- what risks and concerns arise with the disclosure of information about youth and families involved with public agencies and how particular strategies can address these concerns;
- which federal statutes, regulations, and constitutional protections are relevant to information sharing and how they are applied to common information sharing scenarios;
- how several jurisdictions have successfully navigated the legal issues presented in information sharing projects.
The cost of the course is $179.00 and 3.0-3.5 General CLE credit hours are available in accrediting states (approved states include AL, AZ, CA, CO, DE, GA, IA, IN, LA, KS, KY, MN, MT, NE, NV, NM, NC, OH, OK, OR, TX, VT, WY).
