Many professionals are involved in working with justice-involved populations and treatment courts, including but not limited to, judges, attorneys, probation and parole, child welfare professionals, and treatment providers. Clear and transparent communication among professionals in the system improves positive outcomes and promotes lasting change. This presentation highlights how to communicate and integrate treatment and case information as a team and how to function as a team. Among the questions to be answered include: What case information should be shared? Who needs what information? How can you share information appropriately? What does change look like? What are the words to use to describe progress and change?


  • Identify principles of individualized treatment planning and how to engage clients in accountable change.
  • Describe ASAM Criteria multidimensional assessment that guides what treatment and case management data is needed to develop effective treatment and case management plans.
  • Demonstrate how to communicate with all members of the multidisciplinary team to track treatment and court plan progress.
