Trauma and Resilience — New Publication

The Juvenile Law Center has published Trauma and Resilience: A New Look at Legal Advocacy for Youth in the Juvenile Justice and Child Welfare Systems.  “While rates of trauma are high for all youth, they are particularly high for youth in the juvenile justice and child welfare systems. This publication sets forth key risks of and opportunities for using research on trauma in youth advocacy. It focuses on legal strategies advocates can use in court, and the state and local policies needed to support these strategies. It also sets forth basic background, case law analysis, and policy recommendations for the juvenile and criminal justice systems and for the child welfare system.”
