Materials for the Statewide Webinars on Adult Drug Court Best Practices
The first statewide webinar dedicated to the NADCP's Adult Drug Court Best Practices Standards was held on December 4, 2015. That webinar introduced Volumes I and II of the Standards, and focused on Target Population, the first Standard in Volume I. The series will focus on one or two Standards each month, until all ten of the Standards in the two volumes have been covered.
The files below include the audio recording of the December 4th webinar, Vol.I of the Standards (with highlights to the Introduction and Target Population as discussed during the webinar), and summary notes of the discussion.
The Second in the series of statewide webinars will be scheduled in late January/early February 2016, with date TBD.
