Complex Issues in Juvenile Court Practice XIV
Now in its 14th year, this seminar addresses more advanced areas of juvenile court practice. This year, we are featuring two presentations of great relevance. While the judiciary is required to maintain its neutrality and to function independently from public pressure, current events show that judges and their families are not immune from risk of harm or even death from those who disagree with their decisions. The same is true of attorneys who work in challenging legal environments where emotions can run high, such as juvenile court cases. We are honored to have John Muffler, MS, CTM, Principal with Aequitas Global Security, LLC, a nationally-recognized expert, who will address these realties and suggest strategies for increasing safety in the courtroom.
Juveniles often find themselves at risk of harm or prosecution resulting from their use of the internet or social media. Amie Konwinski, the founder and CEO of Smart Gen Society, will address the paradox that while social media appears to increase our “connectedness,” it also has caused a decrease in “attention spans, empathy, and civil discourse while increasing major depressive disorders, self-harm and suicide rates among today’s youth.” Ms. Konwinski will present valuable strategies on how to transition away from the negative social media impact upon juveniles and our communities
During this last year, juvenile court case management returned to the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services (NDHHS) after years of privatized case management. Representatives from NDHHS will present information regarding the transition and its current state. In addition, the seminar will feature an overview of the YRTC facilities.
