Judges and lawyers routinely face making life-altering, best interest decisions about infants and young children who have experienced significant adverse experiences and are at risk for devastating long-term outcomes. This conference is a unique opportunity to learn from and engage with internationally-recognized experts (including judges, lawyers, and infant mental health clinicians) from evidence-based court teams developed in the USA. Working together we will build on and adapt these model programs for implementation in the Canadian context and, in British Columbia, to create the BC Infant and Early Childhood Court Teams (IEECTs).
A limited number of tuition bursaries to partially cover registration fees are available for professionals and service providers working with children and families who would otherwise not be in a position to attend.
