Children and Family Futures partnered with NADCP to publish the Family Treatment Court Best Practice Standards. Supported by the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention, these best practices represent 30 years of rigorous research and rich practice experience. Not only do they serve as an invaluable resource to family treatment courts, the document benefits all treatment courts by providing guidance on how to best serve children and families involved in the justice system.
The Family Treatment Court Best Practice Standards:
- Provide practitioners with a shared definition of the elements required in quality practice
- Establish a common language across various systems and programs that work with families
- Are the foundation for family treatment court adoption of best practices in child welfare, treatment, the courts and child/family well-being
