The National Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges held its 80th annual conference on July 16–19, 2017. The event featured presentations by OJJDP staff on issues relevant to family court and juvenile justice professionals. “So many of the young people you encounter in your courtrooms have been traumatized by violence and abuse,” said Acting Administrator Eileen M. Garry in her remarks. “They need . . . an opportunity to heal and a chance for a new start. This conference is a unique opportunity to share what you have learned works. We at OJJDP look forward to being part of those conversations.”
