Procedural Justice in Action
This interactive procedural justice training is designed for child support professionals of all levels. The course first introduces the key elements of procedural justice — voice, neutrality, respect, understanding, and helpfulness — and then focuses on how these principles can be incorporated into child support cases. Participants are walked through common issues in non-paying cases such as the ability to pay and barriers to engagement and payment, and then discuss how to deal with those issues. In the end, participants will see how incorporating procedural justice principles into child support services is a way to increase reliable support payments and reduce the need for contempt in addressing non-compliance. CSF is also available to assist in the application for Continuing Legal Education credits for all course participants.
