Behavioral Change, Progress, & Technology: Take Two 

Behavioral change is challenging and even more so when individuals are dealing with substance use disorder (SUD). How can justice staff help this process and what can technology do? Judge Bull will tackle those questions in this webinar. Judge Bull will discuss:

  • Behavioral change
  • Why it’s challenging
  • How justice-based programs can facilitate that change
  • The ways technology can make the process simpler

Judge Bull will include practical program examples for attendees and have a Q&A portion at the end.
