    Corrections Counseling - Overview and Interview with an Ex-Offender

    in Training

    Brought to you by The American Public Safety Training Institute (TAPSTI) www.tapsti.org, this 2 hour session reviews correctional counseling and rehabilitation within the prison system. Correctional counseling is intended to transform a convicted felon, to rehabilitate them, into a responsible and productive member of our society. Those within correctional counseling understand the focus on the profession is on changing individual behavior and this often requires a complex mix of counseling, vocational training, social coaching, and academic enhancement. This session includes the findings of a nationwide survey on state correctional counseling and treatment. Using Albert Robert's work entitled "Correctional Counseling and Treatment" we will take a look at how the staffing patterns across the country, the medical, the mental health, the academic and the vocational training needs of offenders are being handled over twenty different state departments of corrections (DOCs).  "John" joins us as an ex-offender who explains how he got into the prison system, what he did, what counseling did for him, and what his life has been like since his release after 6 1/2 years.

    A Repeat Offender In 2016???

    in Lifestyle

    When an individual decides to travel from one destination to another, we often think of what baggage are we going to need to make that trip a success. We want to make sure that we comply to the regulations set by the different airlines or the space we have in our personal vehicle, so we choose carefully. And so goes life. Let's Talk Truth and her guest will discuss just what people are more likely to drag into the new year. Will the baggage that we choose provide positive provisions for the future or negative provisions that will make us repeat offenders of the previous year. Join us today, Tuesday, December 29, 2015 at 7:30pm (cst) to share your thoughts and your ideas for traveling into the new year.

    Changing Sex Offender Laws

    in Politics Progressive

    Blog Talk Radio Show topic: FRANK LINDSAY: WE’RE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER.


    Following our theme of "Restorative Justice," this show will focus on a registrant whose crime occurred over thirty years ago.


    Frank Lindsay is an author, civil rights activist and supporter of organizations that help to change sex offender laws. Over the last several years, as California laws change he is now subject to follow new laws applied retroactively, even though he has proven to be a model citizen. How has he demonstrated using Restorative Justice? What has he done to show he is no longer a threat to society?

    Changing Sex Offender Laws

    in Politics Progressive

    Our next show is Sunday, May 11, at 8:00 pm (PST). This show will feature Dr. Jean Kennedy and Frank Juarez discussing the information they received from the last two shows entitled,  "Religion and Sex Offenders."


    Our response to this broadcast was overwhelming, and the challenge sent out by Frank to any church organization to stand up and make a commitment to help sex offenders has not been met.


    We encourage you to talk with your local church group and ask that important question, "What does my church do about sex offenders coming to my church?" If you practice true Christian principles, the answer should be obvious, and your organized religion will help anyone in need. 


    Remember, laws made for one group of people can easily be changed to attack you. You have the power to change this in our society and to change sex offender laws.

This show describes the extent of the problem and we discuss protocols for intervening. We introduce crisis intervention and we use Roberts’ seven-stage crisis assessment and crisis intervention model from his work entitled "Correctional Counseling and Treatment".  With any time remaining we will take a look at juvenile justice facilities and different programs intended to facilitate juvenile suicide reduction.

    This show will feature Dr. Jean Kennedy and Frank Juarez. Our mission is to educate the public about sex offender issues affecting our nation and damaging our communities. We stand behind this statement, “Education heals hatred and fear.”


    We invite you to listen and participate next week, April 13, 2014, as we review the shows we have talked about since this program began.


    The statistics, facts and research we present is based on reports from the California Sex Offender Management Board, casomb.org, which was given the task of investigating the entire issue of sex offenders in California. They are the biggest advocate for changing and reforming sex offense laws.


    The best way for us to shape the laws and minds of our community is to educate them. Please, tell others about our program and make a decision to be part of the solution, not the problem.
