Webinar: Effective Leadership Teams

July 10th, 2024

Join us for the fourth session in the Navigating Leadership Webinar Series.

An effective court leadership team is a cohesive group of individuals who work collaboratively to achieve a shared goal of administering justice fairly and efficiently. They steer organizations toward accomplishing this shared goal by having inspired and empowered members.

These teams consist of individuals who exhibit strong communication skills, show mutual respect among members, and foster a culture of accountability.

In this session, panelists from the Oregon Judicial Department will explore strategies for creating an effective leadership team by leveraging individual strengths, building resiliency, embracing adaptability, and navigating challenges in the complex operations of the court environment.

Webinar: Family-Centered Fridays - Hope-Centered Child Welfare Court - Cultivating hope for children, families, and court communities

July 26th, 2024

Washington State’s court improvement program has partnered with various state and national partners to bring Dr. Chan Hellman’s Science of Hope research to Washington state.

The science of hope can be used by a system, organization, community, or person to nurture hope in programs, policies, and practices. When a system implements the science of hope in its policies and practices, and becomes hope-centered, it promotes increased well-being for the organization and improved outcomes for the youth and families they serve. Building a hope-centered culture instills people with a sense of common purpose and collaboration, encouraging participants and professionals to shift from a focus on conflict and recrimination to one of possibilities and constructive outcomes. This shift can enhance resilience and emotional regulation, reducing reactive and adversarial behaviors.

During this Family-Centered Friday session, you will hear from  Sarah Burns and Kelly Warner-King, Washington Court Improvement Programs, along with the Heather Cantamessa, Director of Family Impact and Parent Ally at Akin, about their journey to bring the science of hope to Washington and their plans for a hope-centered child welfare court system.

Moderator:

  • Angela Sager, Senior Court Management Consultant, National Center for State Courts

Presenters:

  • Sarah Burns, Statewide Innovation Coordinator, Family and Youth Justice Programs, Washington Administrative Office of the Courts
  • Kelly Warner-King, Manager, Family and Youth Justice Programs, Washington Administrative Office of the Courts
  • Heather Cantamessa, Director of Family Impact, Akin
