Presented by Karla Kerlin, JD; Ashley Price, JD; Elizabeth Kim, LCSW, JD; and James Bianco, JD

This training serves as a follow-up to the previous training, Working with Justice-Involved Clients: Part 1, which took place on May 17, 2023. This training will more closely examine how the justice system interacts with individuals with serious mental illness (SMI). Participants will review statistics regarding individuals with SMI in the justice system and the best practices for discussing mental health in the courtroom setting. This training will highlight important practice points for clinicians, such as strategies for coordinating and advocating on behalf of clients in the justice system, as well as ethical considerations.
