NCDC headed out west to train 5 DUI court teams in Billings, Montana. The teams thought outside the box on how they can expand their resources to best meet their client's needs. Ideas flowed from looking at creating a regional DUI court to applying evidence based practices to treatment. Overall it was a great two days engaging with the Montana teams. A special thanks to Montana state Traffic Safety Office and State Treatment Court office for bringing us their state.
NCDC traveled north to train 5 existing OWI court teams in Johnson Creek, Wisconsin. Besides the amazing food and cheese curds, these teams did a great job taking a deeper look into their procedures and determining creative ways to integrate best practices and model fidelity. Teams learned how to work together as they creatively designed shelters using popsicle sticks and construction paper while suffering frostbitten tongues. Overall it was a great two days engaging with the Wisconsin teams. A special thanks to Wisconsin state Treatment Court team for bringing us their state.
NCDC headed to the Southwest to train 5 existing DWI court teams in a statewide Operational Tune-Up Training. There are a lot of exciting things happening in the programs in New Mexico. The teams learned to work together even though frostbite had silenced everyone in the team challenge activity to build a shelter. Teams learned the latest cutting-edge research and discussed ways to implement it into their programs. Overall it was a great two days engaging and teaching the teams. A special thanks to the New Mexico Administrative Office of the Courts for assisting us in bringing this training to the participating DWI court teams.
NCDC traveled to the Mile High City to bring our Operational Tune-Up Training to 5 DWI court teams in Colorado. We strive to provide cutting-edge research and information in an interactive way, and this was no exception. We introduced a new team-building activity where teams had to accomplish the following tasks by working together: build an emergency shelter to survive a snow storm, without talking, since your tongues have frostbite! Participants enjoyed learning to work as a unit through this creative, hands-on exercise. We are thankful to the Colorado Problem Solving Association for assisting in providing this training to the DWI court teams.
There is an emerging trend across the country in which more and more veterans are enrolling in DWI court programs, but these men and women are not always aware of the range of services for which they qualify. This webinar will take a deeper look at the transition from active-duty service to veteran civilian status, substance use and addiction in the military veteran population, treating veteran-specific mental health needs, and the unique services available to veterans in your DWI court program through the Department of Veterans Affairs and other resources.
