Juvenile Justice Association of Michigan Conference

Team members from Growth Works’ Case Management Organization, attended the mid-winter conference for the Juvenile Justice Association of Michigan (JJAM) in Midland Michigan. This session focused on working with traumatized youth, suicide prevention and secondary trauma from presenters from the area including Dr. James Henry. Thank you to our incredible team who is constantly working to provide support and resources that will benefit the youth in our care.

The Juvenile Justice Association of Michigan was formed in 1973 by the County Juvenile Officer’s Association and the Family Court Workers Association. JJAM is actively working to provide representation for all juvenile justice personnel, promoting and maintaining standards of efficiency within the Michigan Family Justice System and encouraging innovative legislation, resolutions and other desirable efforts representing the common interest of children and their families in the State of Michigan.

Social Emotional Support Parent Night at Livonia Public Schools

Everyone could use a bit of support when it comes to raising kids… Growth Works is grateful to be a part of the Social Emotional Support Parent Night for Livonia Public Schools. The event took place at Stevenson High School and included resources, breakouts and Q & A’s to help parents navigate complex issues their children are facing. Some of the topics included anxiety, stress, depression, suicide, social media safety, grief and loss and substance abuse. Growth Works Peer Recovery Coaches hosted a discussion around substance use and vaping to help educate community members and parents.

If you are hosting an event and are interested in having a member of the Growth Works team participate, please contact, Growth Works Community Relations Director.

Michigan Association of Treatment Court Professional (MATCP) Annual Conference

Michigan Association of Treatment Court Professionals’ (MATCP) 23rd Annual Conference in Grand Rapids Michigan was a great opportunity to collaborate with Treatment Court partners across the state of Michigan and share best practices. Growth Works had representation in two panel presentations, Peer Coaching as a Part of an Integrated Treatment Plan and Integrating Multiple Pathways to Recovery. These presentations were a great opportunity to share information regarding the Growth Works’ Peer Recovery Coaching model and how we partner with local Treatment Courts.

Growth Works is grateful for our partners at the 23rd District Court in Taylor, Families Against Narcotics HARM:LESS Program and Hegira Health for their collaboration in these important discussions.

The mission of the Michigan Association of Treatment Court Professionals (MATCP) is to provide leadership to treatment courts in the State of Michigan.
