    Solving Problems in Juvenile Detention

    in Psychology

    Dr. Greene's guest on today's program was Jeff Morin, Acting Superintendent at Mountain View Youth Development Center, a juvenile detention facility in Charleston, Maine.  Led by people like Jeff, there have been many positive changes at Mountain View...changes in how the challenges of incarcerated youth are understood, in perceptions about what these kids need, and in how they're treated.  The State of Maine has led the charge for the enlightened care of incarcerated youth, and on this program you'll hear about how they did it.  (Hint:  it wasn't easy or fast!)  This program is sponsored by Lives in the Balance (www.livesinthebalance.org).

    Proper Leadership in the Afrocentric/Conscious Community | Imhotep Fatiu

    in Business

    Imhotep Asis Fatiu, affectionately known as Baba Asis to many within Baltimore City, was born Antoin Torain on March 20 1971 to Marie and Connie Torain; the fifth of six children. During his youth, he grew up in the challenging Park Heights Neighborhood on Shirley Avenue where he was introduced to aggression, criminality, and all facets of street survival as early as age six. Contention within the socio-economic repressed neighborhood of Park Heights would engulf him causing young Antoin to engage in a series of acts which kept him in and out of juvenile courts and detention centers and would eventually lead him to being sentenced for 20 years in prison; of which he served 13 years and 9 months, being released in November of 2004. In Imhotep’s words, “I did not have the knowledge, skills or moral and structural support to succeed.”


    From his 20 years of incessantly studying African history and culture, politics, psychology, sociology, and world history; Imhotep Fatiu emerged. Imhotep has spent years making amends to his community and ancestors for any wrongs done through his dedicated, unwavering and consistent efforts to teach, organize, empower, and heal the spirits and minds of Black people.  His extensive experiences assessing the urban psyche, community organizing, experiencing the worst of European aggression, and using critical thought inspired Imhotep to develop a system of concepts and behavioral code entitled: UrBan Philosoph

    Jim and Jennifer welcome Kathi Hardy to the show.  Kathi is a recovering drug addict and former prostitute who has dedicated much of her life helping those who have found themselves in similar life situations.


    A faithful participant in San Diego's "Prostitution Impact Panel," which has hosted over 808 men with a staggering low 3.5% recidivism rate, Kathi has also helped start the Survivors of the Streets group, which the City Attorney's office utilizes as a First Offender Diversion Program for adults who were picked up for prostitution activities. Many of the 700 participants have been victims of human trafficking. Working with Juvenile Hall and Child Welfare, her group has seen hundreds of children who have been victimized, with the goal to reeducate them so they may lead healthier lifestyles.  


    Kathi’s program won the Norma Hotaling Award, Chief's Award from San Diego County Juvenile Probation, and recognition by New Alternatives, Inc. in San Diego.
