Innovation in the Sunshine State

Children removed from their parents experience trauma and early attachment is disturbed. Our court system is responding and creating trauma-informed policies for children and families.

I am at the Zero to Three national conference and wanted to share something exciting with you about our state.

Last night at the keynote to kick off the conference, Justice Barbara J. Pariente (FL Supreme Court) and Dr. Mimi Graham (Florida State University) presented info about how Florida is leading the way with building Safe Babies Court Teams. I attached a picture here. Florida is being used as a model for other states. We have 24 early childhood therapeutic problem solving courts across Florida! FANTASTIC!

I am sharing more about this conference on Twitter. Feel free to follow if you're interested @marisa_macy.
