The Impact of a Trauma-Informed Court

Presented by Judge Carole Clark

Judge Carole ClarkCASA Child Advocates of Montgomery County is proud to present The Impact of a Trauma Informed Court. The training is based upon the new film from the Karyn Purvis Institute of Child Development at Texas Christian University, ALL RISE: For the Good of the Children, which takes you inside the courtroom of an unconventional East Texas judge who uses a trauma-informed, trust-based approach to healing broken families in the child welfare system. Two families share how they transformed their lives through the support and intervention offered by Judge Carole Clark and her team of lawyers, mental health experts and child advocates.

In this session, we will explore the impact of early maltreatment and how to implement trauma-informed practices in the court system. It will include a screening of the film, along with bonus footage, and a presentation about the trauma-informed practices and approach of Judge Clark’s court that was featured in the film.
