Introduction

Incorporating Procedural Justice-Informed Strategies into Child Support Services: Training Approaches Applied in the PJAC Demonstration Project

This 4-page project brief (PDF) is the first in a series designed to share lessons learned as the Procedural Justice-Informed Alternatives to Contempt (PJAC) model is implemented. It describes the specialized training provided to child support staff at the six participating sites who are adapting procedural justice-informed approaches to their work with parents. For example, all PJAC caseworkers receive training in the principles of procedural justice and how to apply the concepts; dispute resolution; responses to domestic violence; and trauma-informed practices.

For an overview of the PJAC demonstration see A New Response to Child Support Noncompliance: Introducing the Procedural Justice-Informed Alternatives to Contempt Project.
