Abstract: Problem-solving courts have emerged in response to growing concerns about the efficacy of contemporary criminal justice approaches. Specifically, mental health courts (MHCs) address the growing problem of defendants with mental illness cycling through the criminal justice system. MHCs diverge from the traditional court model and are characterized by a treatment orientation within a collaborative framework. These shifts influence the role of the judge in the everyday practices of the court. This paper relies on qualitative data – courtroom vignettes and interviews with MHC team member and participants from two MHCs on the West coast – to explore the role of judges in dispending “therapeutic justice”. Qualitative data suggest that judicial style and temperament, “buy-in” to the court’s mission, and procedural justice are central to judicial effectiveness. Findings challenge the notion that judges are the central “therapeutic agents”. Data illustrate other team members, especially probation officers, are central to participant’s experiences, success in court and therapeutic outcomes. The shift toward a treatment philosophy in MHCs markedly alters the judicial landscape encouraging judges to be leaders of the team but often in a supportive role. Implications for the future of MHCs are explored.

Abstract: As the number and reach of political polls grow, scholars debate the effects that polls have on citizens’ vote intentions, preferences, perceptions of candidates, expectations, turnout decisions, and ultimately, their voting decisions. In this paper, we analyze instead whether and under what conditions polls provide citizens with cues that help them to improve their decisions. Specifically, we use laboratory experiments to investigate 1) whether and when polls help citizens to make better choices than they would have made on their own and 2) whether and when citizens are willing to bear the costs of obtaining polling information. Our results demonstrate that polls can have detrimental effects on citizens’ decisions. That is, we find that polls often cause citizens to make incorrect decisions and that citizens would have made better decisions on their own. We also find that citizens are more likely to obtain polls when the decisions that they must make are difficult and when they are unsophisticated. Ironically, when the decisions that citizens must make are difficult, the pollees also tend to be uninformed about the correct choices and, therefore, do not provide much useful information. Thus, our results suggest that the fewer polls that citizens receive, the better decisions they make.

Abstract: Despite widespread promotion of social-justice leadership, education leaders struggle to sustain equity-focused initiatives in the face of conflict. I argue that a critical consciousness is necessary, but not sufficient to implement equity-oriented policies. Leaders must be equipped with skills to navigate conflict through strategic action to advance an equity agenda. In this Ignite presentation, I present a framework outlining leadership for navigating conflicts in support of educational equity policies

Abstract: This study analyzes contemporary local television news content to explore possible relationships between the stories ranked highest in priority in the newscast and the people who communicate that high-priority information to the American public. In order to paint a picture of demographic diversity of gender, race, and age of those local television news presenters, this study provides an analysis of lead story presentation in late-night newscasts for all of the 200 stations in the largest 50 Designated Market Areas (DMAs) across the country, through a constructed week of newscasts representing the latter part of 2015.
