Call For Presenters

2020: A Justice Odyssey

Closed for the 2020 Conference.

Conference Overview

The Arizona Association of Drug Court Professionals (AADCP) is pleased to announce the Call for Presenters for the 2020 Treatment Court Conference: A Justice Odyssey to be held April 15-17, 2020, at the Prescott Resort in Prescott, Arizona. Our goal is to offer quality workshops that provide skill-building opportunities, increase professional competencies, and focus on implementing research into practice, while also encompassing the spirit of this year’s conference theme.

AADCP is seeking proposals for sessions/workshops, 75 minutes in length, that present best practices in service delivery, collaboration and justice programming that enhance outcomes for participants in treatment courts, including adult, juvenile, family and reentry drug treatment courts; DWI courts; tribal healing to wellness courts; and veterans treatment courts. AADCP strongly encourages proposals for sessions that present research findings, feature data analysis and highlight evidence-based practices.

AADCP may publish part or all of the proceedings of this conference. By presenting at the conference, you agree that AADCP has the right to include your presentation in a future publication and/or on its websites if AADCP decides to do so. You are not precluded from publishing your material elsewhere, nor is AADCP obligated to include it in any book, monograph, scholarly journal or other communication that may arise from this conference.

When completing the “Abstract” and “Learning Objectives” portions of this application, please craft language that could be used in the official conference program to describe your session. If your application is accepted, this section of your application may be included in the final program.
