Veterans Treatment Courts (VTCs) use an interdisciplinary team approach to divert justice involved veterans away from incarceration and into treatment. This proactive approach towards justice involvement is accomplished by effectively targeting and addressing participants’ responsivity needs, specifically ones that are clinical (medical, behavioral health and trauma), cultural, and criminogenic. In this webinar, participants will learn about the core, essential components that comprise a VTC with particular focus placed on the mentoring component. Three presenters will discuss essential elements that contribute to the ongoing success of the mentoring component and the importance of using best practices in peer mentoring implementation. Vital information about resources for mentoring components to access will be discussed, including recently developed online training modules, and a new mentor coordinator curriculum.
