The Tribal Law and Policy Institute (TLPI), in partnership with the National Association of Drug Court Professionals (NADCP), Justice for Vets (JFV), and the American Indian and Alaska Native Addiction Technology Transfer Center are pleased to offer this free two-day Southwest Veterans Tribal Healing to Wellness Court Training highlighting important considerations for serving and treating Native veterans.
Tribal Veteran Wellness Courts are restorative justice dockets established to respond to the offenses and treatment needs of veterans who are diagnosed with substance abuse. They are managed by a multidisciplinary team familiar with the unique experience and issues of Native veterans. They can operate as stand-alone dockets or as part of a more general Healing to Wellness Court.
The Southwest Veterans Tribal Healing to Wellness Court Training will bring together tribal courts, state courts, and veteran service providers, along with scholars, technical assistance providers, and researchers to discuss Tribal Veteran Healing to Wellness courts, strategies for serving rural and tribal communities, and partnerships with law enforcement.
The Conference will include an overview of the Tribal Veteran Healing to Wellness court model, best practices of Tribal Veteran Healing to Wellness courts, special considerations for veterans, special considerations for Native populations, and unique resources for tribal and veteran service providers, recent academic observations and insights, along with best practices and field-initiated innovations into best serving tribal veterans.
