Juvenile judges from across Tennessee recently held their winter conference in Murfreesboro, focusing on the effects of vicarious trauma on themselves, judicial staff and children. Tennessee Supreme Court Justice Roger A. Page and Tennessee Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges President Judge Vicki Snyder welcomed the juvenile judges to the conference. Administrative Office of the Courts Director Deborah Taylor Tate reviewed the new Juvenile Justice Reform Implementation Council, created by former Gov. Bill Haslam; the federal Families First Prevention Act; the status of the seven Safe Baby Courts currently operating in the state; and juvenile-specific resources and materials on the opioid crisis.
