461 North Star Vision of Collaboration in Juvenile Justice*

Engaging at-risk youth in juvenile justice settings can be challenging for even the most seasoned professionals. This session will review a success initiative experienced at one juvenile justice facility supported by the behavioral health, restorative justice, and "credible messenger" teams. The new approach increased youth engagement with cofacilitated group sessions and wellness activities, daily reflection of restorative justice principles, and a revised level system.

Educational Objectives:

Describe the traditional roles and responsibilities of behavioral health, restorative justice, and credible messenger teams

Name the barriers to traditional approaches to engaging youth in cognitive behavior treatment

Discuss the challenges and successes of combining behavioral health with restorative justice and credible justice programs

Level: Intermediate
