Brought to you by The American Public Safety Training Institute (TAPSTI) www.tapsti.org, this 2 hour session will review juvenile correctional counseling and rehabilitation within the prison system. From 1991 through to 2003, the number of juveniles housed in residential programs increased by 27 percent such that there were 96,000 juveniles across the country who were housed in residential programs (Snyder & Sickmund, 2006). Many of these had mental health issues including major depression, anxiety disorders, attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder, conduct disorder, or obsessive-compulsive disorder. The juvenile justice system in this country is faced with the same challenges as our adult correctional system in serving youth who may have one or more mental health disorders. Using Albert Robert's work entitled "Correctional Counseling and Treatment" we will take a look at the assessment, classification, and treatment of juvenile offenders, risks of reoffending, and family inteventions.

The juvenile justice and criminal justice systems ensnare far too many black and brown boys and men. Increasingly, women are caught in this dangerous web too. On this episode of Know-It-All, we are exploring the contours of some of the barriers to mental health and developmental wellness for communities of color that can lead to mass incarceration.
Dr. Troy Waller is a licensed professional counselor with 15 years of counseling experience. He explains the implications of the breaks in various systems - education, criminal justice, and health care - that keep those systems from adequately protecting and serving black and brown people. He'll share his insights about how these systemic failures manifest and show up in the lives of adults, no matter their socioeconomic status.
Host Allison R. Brown is a civil rights attorney and founder of Allison Brown Consulting (ABC), which creates education equity plans and promotes equity in education in compliance with federal civil rights law.
Tune in this Thursday when we take a look at Virginia’s sentencing structure for juveniles. We will be interviewing Kate Duvall, an attorney with JustChildren. She represents individual youth who have been given blended juvenile and adult sentences in unique sentence review hearings. Kate is also involved with Virginia’s Don’t Throw Away the Key campaign, which is focused on reducing the number of youth who are transferred to adult court. We will be discussing how Virginia’s juvenile transfer laws got to where there are today, how JustChildren thinks the laws should change in the future, and how to get involved in the Don’t Throw Away the Key campaign. Don’t miss another great show!
July 2, 2015: July is Juvenile Arthritis Awareness Month. The word “arthritis” might call to mind images of older adults, and with good reason – aging is a primary cause of osteoarthritis, which affects an estimated 27 million Americans.
But arthritis isn’t exclusive to adults, children can develop arthritis as well. Juvenile arthritis isn’t a specific condition but an umbrella term that includes numerous types and subtypes.
In this episode of Move Forward Radio, a physical therapist will walk us through those types of juvenile arthritis and describe typical treatments for the disease.

Tribal Youth and Juvenile Justice: Promoting Resiliency, Youth Engagement, and Delinquency Prevention
American Indiana and Alaska Native (AI/AN) children and youth have historically been overrepresented in systems, including the juvenile justice system. This has severely impacted AI/AN youth and also the tribal communities’ ability to provide resources and services to tribal youth and their families. Stephanie Autumn and Gerry RainingBird from the Education Development Center, Tribal Programs join this episode of Spotlight on Youth to provide an overview of the demographics of tribal youth at risk for or involved in delinquency matters, discuss the unique risk and protective factors, and share promising practices in prevention and intervention. Guests will also explore the complexities of juvenile justice reform in tribal communities as complicated by the potential multiple jurisdictional issues and the distinct traditions of each tribe.
Tonight we will continue to discuss why the Criminal Justice System is not effective here in Amerika.
