In this podcast, Dr. Speedlin Gonzalez interviews judges from the criminal and civil courts to discuss counselors' roles in the judiciary. Three judges describe their experiences working with counselors and how valuable our work is with both arms of the law (criminal and civil). The judges also talk about the concept of therapeutic jurisprudence and how the law and counseling collaborate effectively to serve communities.
Judge Rosie Speedlin Gonzalez, Bexar County Court at Law #13 (a misdemeanor family violence criminal court and family violence drug court); Judge Yolanda Huff, Bexar County Court at Law #12 (a misdemeanor court and mental health specialty court); and Judge Tina Torres, 407th District Court of Bexar County (a civil court). All three judges are known for their collaborative efforts with the therapeutic community and advocacy efforts with community-based agencies and services.
