Honoring Women: A Model for Gender-Specific Specialized Dockets

The New England Addiction Technology Transfer Center (ATTC) in partnership with the New England Association of Recovery Court Professionals (NEARCP) are hosting the next webinar in an ongoing series of targeted TA sessions for criminal justice professionals, "Honoring Women: A Model for Gender-Specific Specialized Dockets". In the last forty years, the number of incarcerated adult women increased by more than 475%.  A woman-focused specialized docket provides an opportunity to acknowledge that participants in the criminal justice system bear gender-specific needs, responsibilities, and concerns while addressing the trauma pervasive among women affected by substance use disorder. This program will focus on the gender-based predictors of and patterns and pathways into substance misuse and the criminal justice system and address the specific treatment, trauma, relationship, familial responsibility, physical and mental health, and economic circumstances of women that must be appropriately addressed during drug court participation. The program will conclude with the processes, personnel, and programs necessary to build a successful gender-specific specialized docket.
