Presented by NACC staff, and created in partnership with the ABA Center on Children and the Law, the Rocky Mountain Children’s Law Center, Zero to Three, and the Kempe Center, this first-of-its-kind training series focuses on the knowledge, skills, activities, and best practices needed to deliver high-quality representation to infants and toddlers.
The NACC Infants and Toddlers Training Series will be presented in three interactive webinars:
November 2, 2023, 12-2pm MT/2-4pm ET – Representing Infants and Toddlers: Knowledge
- This webinar will discuss the key areas of knowledge that attorneys need to provide high-quality legal representation to infants and toddlers. Attendees will learn about culturally humble representation, child development, trauma, attachment, and behavioral health and apply those concepts to the effective legal representation of their infant and toddler clients.
November 9, 2023, 12-2pm MT/2-4pm ET – Representing Infants and Toddlers: Skills
- This webinar will discuss the key skills that attorneys need to provide high-quality legal representation to infants and toddlers. The webinar will give a framework for the different models of representation and ethical obligations and challenges attorneys representing infants and toddlers may face. Attendees will learn practical skills, as applied to the representation of infants and toddlers, in the areas of independent investigation, client interviewing and counseling, safety assessment, collaborative skills, case planning, and written and oral advocacy.
November 16, 2023, 12-2pm MT/2-4pm ET – Representing Infants and Toddlers: Activities
- This webinar will apply the knowledge and skills learned in the first two webinars and incorporate that into the essential activities for providing high quality legal representation to infants and toddlers. Attendees will learn how to effectively advocate for reasonable efforts, kinship placement, and family time to further the needs and interests of their infant and toddler clients. The webinar will also address the importance of monitoring service provision, permanency and concurrent planning, using experts, and litigation.
