  • Wendy Addison, Speak Out, Speak Up: 21st Century Whistle Blowers

    in Legal

    Wendy Addison's life is the stuff that makes up a great film.
    Wendy shares her experience as a whistleblower who spoke out long before Assange and Snowden made it mainstream and prior to protective legislation being in place. Her ability to have won an eleven year war of attrition is motivational as is her ability to forgive, her drive to walk a path less travelled and the stepping stones she has laid down for others to follow her lead. Wendy's battle has been for what's 'right'. It's an exposure of much of what is 'wrong' in the world. It's about Truth or Dare or rather 'Daring to tell the truth'.  
    She has shared speaker platforms with Daniel Ellsberg (Pentagon Whistleblower), Coleen Rowley (FBI whistleblower), Dr Phil Zimbardo (Stanford Prison experiments) and Professor Roger Steare of ethicability. Find out more here: www.speakout-speakup.org

  • Reentry Court: One Community's Model to Help Youth Returning Home

    in Legal

    After spending time in a correctional facility, youth are often released without family, system, or community support.  For a myriad of reasons, these youth face high rates of unemployment and education failure, have limited viable housing options, and are unable to access the assistance they require. Many now realize that in order to achieve long-term success, that reentry planning must occur way before a youth returns to his or her community. In order to address this disconnect and increase chances of success, the Juvenile Court in Cuyahoga County, Ohio, in partnership with the Ohio Department of Youth Services, Division of Parole, and community-based services, created a reentry court. Using evidence-based practices and with a goal to reduce recidivism and re-incarceration of youth, the project begins to work with youth several months before release and the support continues post-release. Guests on this episode will discuss the development and implementation of the collaborative effort, provide an overview of the mechanics of the reentry court itself, and share lessons learned.
    Guests:
    Karl M. Cetina, MPA, LICDC-CS, Director of Juvenile TASC for Cuyahoga County Catholic Charities, Diocese of Cleveland
    Ian Fraser, Cleveland Regional Parole Administrator, Ohio Department of Youth Services
    Magistrate Terease Neff, Cuyahoga County Court of Common Pleas, Juvenile Division

  • How Not to Become Your Own Personal Injury Case

    in Legal

    Cynthia is going to speak about the process she uses to help attorneys stay in balance and out of stress.  As an attorney, you might be performing at a high level of excellence, so you are most likely unaware of how you are not in balance but in stress.  The problem with that is, over 80% of human suffering and disease is now caused by stress.
    Cynthia has a masters in psychology and is a certified Emotional Brain Training Provider.  Her emphasis is on helping attorneys learn how to quickly self-regulate their stress response throughout the day.  She has a private practice in Denver and also works with people on the phone, or through SKYPE from around the country and world-wide.
    She has lectured at the University of Colorado and Denver Law Schools, Lawyers Helping Lawyers board, Colorado Defense Lawyers Association, Colorado Trial Lawyers conference and the Colorado Legislative Legal Services. 
    Learning the self-regulation skills and tools takes approximately 6, 1 hour sessions. Doctors refer patients to her.

  • Social Networking in Schools – Can Schools Demand Passwords

    in Legal

    Employers are not the only ones demanding social media passwords – schools are doing so too.  There has been lots of media attention about this – resulting in a surge of legislative activity on the issue.  In Illinois, a new law went into effect this year allowing school officials to have access to passwords to students’ social media accounts in certain situations.  The concern, of course, is how this impacts a student’s right to privacy under the Constitution and state laws.  This podcast with Kelly Anderson will explore the new law and how it could affect your children.
