Karisa speaks with YouthCare at the Public Defenders office


Karisa, who runs our CEDAR intervention work with youth charged with their first felony, spoke in a panel with Johnny and Annarose from YouthCare and some amazing individuals from the King County's Department of Public Defense last Thursday! The panel, entitled “Effectively working with young adults to improve communication, comprehension, and case outcomes” was introduced as a way of connecting with public defenders and informing them of community resources. Excited to have more opportunities to collaborate with other fantastic service providers, to offer our expertise, learn, and engage with other groups that serve our young people. 

Included below are some sections of the PowerPoint they used because understanding the brain of a young person is so crucial to understanding our work. Thanks to Katie and Adrien and everyone who made this happen!
