Continuing Legal Education Training (CLE)- Risks of Residential Facilities
July 2 @ 12:00 pm
Director of the Direct Representation Program, Rachel Roman-Lagunas, is joining the Indiana Public Defender Council (IPDC) and the Indiana State Bar Association (ISBA) to host a Continuing Legal Education training which will focus on the risks of residential facilities for our community’s youth.
Residential facilities often inflict additional trauma on vulnerable children in our community. When we send children to live in these secure, expensive, privately owned facilities, what are we accomplishing? This one-hour CLE will focus on what a residential facility is, why they are used, and the risks to our children who live in residential facilities. We will review past lawsuits and common concerns regarding these facilities. Finally, we will discuss how to develop community plans that result in a child receiving more intensive community services outside of a facility.
