Presents an overview of how a family court judge collaborates with families, the child welfare agency, and stakeholders to improve family and children outcomes and significantly reduce the number of children in foster care. This National Foster Care Month webinar features Assistant Secretary Lynn Johnson, Associate Commissioner Jerry Milner, and interviews with Judge Trent Favre and parent attorney Lanie Roussel, who share court collaboration efforts in Hancock County, Mississippi. Key elements to their success include using a trauma-informed approach, focusing on maintaining strong relationships with stakeholders, creating a visitation center to provide a homelike setting for parent-child and sibling visits, and holding monthly permanency hearings.
