Discussing the impact of the pandemic on juvenile justice

The National Center for State Courts will present the webinar “The Impact of the Pandemic on Youth Development and Policy Trends in Juvenile Justice” on Friday, July 8, from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m. via Zoom.

Courts need to prepare now to effectively serve young people who have experienced school disconnectedness, social isolation, and exacerbated mental health needs, according to NCSC officials.

This session aims to bridge the experience of youth during the pandemic to juvenile justice policy.  

Dr. Olivia Hamrah, a child and adolescent psychiatrist from Georgetown University, will describe the impact of the pandemic on children's social development and mental health, and Anne Teigen, from the National Conference of State Legislatures, will focus on juvenile justice policy trends across the country.
