As ideas come to the attention of members of the Model Court Core Group, those ideas are brought to the Core Group and considered as possible initiatives to improve the ability of the court, the agencies, and the lawyers to respond more effectively in cases of abuse and neglect of children and termination of parental rights. If successful after a trial period, these initiatives can become an ongoing part of the court/agency process for these type of cases.
The following is a list of current court initiatives:
- Family Group Conferencing
- Mediation in Abuse and Neglect Cases
- Family Treatment Drug Court
- Adoption Saturday
