Program Information & Registration

About Webinar Series:
This 3-part webinar series will explore the history, policy solutions, and legal challenges and present practical solutions for effective change.  Resolution 605 was adopted by the American Bar  Association in 2023 because of decades of well-documented abuse within the Troubled Teen Industry and youth residential treatment centers.  Despite this awareness, little has been done to protect children in institutional settings.
