Tribal, state, federal, and local courts have overlapping jurisdictions and face common challenges and resource limitations. To address these concerns, several jurisdictions have come together in a joint jurisdictional Healing to Wellness Courts (HTWC) model that acknowledges each other’s autonomy, while sharing resources for better outcomes for everyone.

This workshop will discuss what joint jurisdictional courts are, how they began, and how, through different forms of intergovernmental collaboration, tribes have been successful in operating joint jurisdictional HTWC courts.
