The 2016 Tribal Healing to Wellness Court Enhancement Training is the preeminent national training opportunity for tribal problem-solving courts. Like national and regional drug court trainings, the Tribal Healing to Wellness Court Enhancement Training will be oriented around the ten key components and the National Association of Drug Court Professionals (NADCP) National Drug Court Standards.
Unlike non-tribal trainings, however, the Tribal Healing to Wellness Court Enhancement Training focuses upon tribal issues, including jurisdictional and legal issues unique to Indian country; the incorporation of custom and tradition into the phases, case management, treatment curriculums, and tangential services; and the peer-to-peer sharing of successful Healing to Wellness Courts models in operations.
The Tribal Healing to Wellness Court Enhancement Training is free, and all materials, including referenced publications and PowerPoint slides, will be posted and available to all attendees on enhtraining.tlpi.org and WellnessCourts.org. You can view 2015 and 2014 agenda and presentation materials at http://enhtraining.tlpi.org/prior-materials.
Wellness Court teams are encouraged to attend as a team, including the judge, prosecutor, defense counselor, coordinator, case manager, probation officer, law enforcement officer, treatment provider, behavioral health representative, child welfare representative, cultural resource provider, and all other team members. In additional, Advisory and/or Steering Committee members are welcome to join, including Tribal Council members.
