    Christmas In Jail: Should Non Violent Offenders Be Released?

    in Women

    This is a difficult time of year for those who are in jail. Many who are awaiting trial are simply there because they don't have the money to pay the cost bail. Some people are in jail for petty things like possession of marijuana, which is not a violent crime. Should non violent offenders be released

    Corrections Counseling - Sex Offenders: Assessment and Treatment

    in Training

    This seminar is brought to you by The American Public Safety Training Institute with a website address of www.tapsti.org. This 2-hour session includes the work of Albert Roberts and his textbook entitled “Correctional Counseling and Treatment: Evidence-Based Perspectives”, a Prentice Hall text, (2008) by Pearson Education. My name is Mike Pozesny and I am your host during this seminar. This seminar is dedicated to my students, to the men and women of public safety, and to the juvenile justice counselors, probation officers, administrators and all the rest who try to inform us how to be better peacekeepers. Listeners can call in Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays from 10:AM – 12:00AM by calling 646-668-2462 and be a part of the show where topics include a wide range of criminal justice subjects. You can find a show schedule and links on www.tapsti.org. 


    The UCRs collect sex offense data on forcible rape and sex offences. The Sex offenses include sodomy, statutory rape, and moral offences. The NCVS collects sexual offense data on rape and sexual assault. The National Incidence-Based Reporting System divides sex crimes data into six major categories: 1) forcible rape, 2) statutory rape, 3) forcible sodomy, 4) forcible fondling, 5) incest, and 6) sexual assault. States have some of their own statutes which may be different and each of these areas has sub-areas as well. Today we have a social and criminal challenge in that a wider range of sexual acts are being categorized as crimes and we need to determine if this is the best way for us to utilize the criminal justice system to help with social regulation or if we don't need to approach sex in a different way.

    Corrections Counseling - Assessment and Treatment of Juvenile Offenders

    in Training

    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.

    Stop Child Abuse Now (SCAN) - 1286

    in Self Help

    Tonight's special guest is Cheri Roberts from Lincoln City, Oregon. Cheri is a prolific journalist, who suffered many forms of (sexual, emotional and physical) abuse as a child and her series offers voices from other adult survivors supported by leading experts on the topic of pedophilia, incest and molestation. Cheri is a weekly talk-show host and producer for "Challenging the Rhetoric" (#CTR) every Wednesday. She also hosts a special First Thursdays series called, Sickness of Silence (#SOS) addressing childhood sexual abuse. The talk show description explains, "The culture of silence lives on in every generation molding each like the one that came before it. Silence enables abuse, but our words have always held the power to stop it. It is our inability to listen to and share uncomfortable truths that have allowed families to maintain their semblance of normalcy." Cheri suffered abuse as a child, but most notably was sexually abused by several uncle's and a couple of her mother's boyfriends. The sexual abuse began at the age of 3 when Cheri's uncle and aunt became her legal guardians amidst the drug-fueled backdrop of America's sexual revolution. Cheri has spoken openly on the topic of her abuse for decades and feels the shaming of the abuser is also the shaming of the child. As she says, "Shame is what keeps secrets." Outside of her personal life, Cheri is a much endorsed writer, investigative journalist, coach and marketer. As a freelance writer and prominent activist, Cheri lives her life “out-loud” challenging the system with her back turned against the status quo of the failed corporate media.

    Should the Syrian refugees be compared to sex offenders instead of rabid dogs

    in Politics Conservative

    Can anybody tell me what is the big deal with the comment GOP presidential candidate Ben Carson made a comparison between Syrian refugees and rabid dogs.  Have we gotten to the point in this country where you can't make a comment without people not understanding the meaning behind the comment. Are we the only country that can take in these refugees? Leadership don't know what to do with the people we already have here. It is a good thing that the illegal Mexicans are packing up and making their way back to Mexico.  If liberals/Democrats are concerned about the well being of the refugees, why don't they open their homes to the homeless in America? It only applies if they can use somebody else's money and resources to get things done.  We have some insurance companies backing out of the healthcare exchanges because it is not financially feasible to maintain.

    Stop Child Abuse Now (SCAN) - 1285

    in Self Help

    Tonight's special guest is Linda Dueling from Omaha, Nebraska, a child abuse survivor and active NAASCA volunteer family member. Linda was sexually abused and eventually raped by her Grandpa. This went on until she was about 8 years old. Later, at 12, she would 'fall in love' with a 20 year old who introduced her to IV drugs. At 15 she ended up living on the streets with a boy and they were eventually arrested for 'breaking and entering' when they tried to find shelter. He was sent to Juvenile Hall, but Linda was released to her mother. "Mom slapped and hit me the whole walk home about 12 blocks." She ran away again and experienced a horrible gang rape by a group of 'friends'. Linda says. "I know GOD saved me that night." Linda began using drugs again and meet a boy who would become her husband. "He began hitting me within months," Linda says. "I was beaten daily." It took nearly 2 decades before she joined a church and got clean. For a while things got better. She earned a Certificate in Counseling for Addiction. She built businesses and was seen as a 'success'. "I had over come my addiction and my marriage was now 'healthy' by everyone's standards. Yet I felt dead." In 2008 she tried to take her life. "I was held at the hospital for almost a month. When I left I went into Intensive Outpatient Therapy 5 days a week, four hours a day." In 2010 she'd had enough. "I left for a business trip and never returned home." Her life has improved but she knows she still has a long way to go. She pushes on "Telling this side of my story with out protecting anyone in the process is a new journey."

    in Self Help

    SPECIAL TOPIC Night - "Child Abuse, Trauma and 12-Step Recovery" - STEP 4 (and we'll include a bit about TRADITION 4) - SCAN host Bill Murray will be joined by special guest co-host Rivka Edery, MSW, LCSW, author of the book "Trauma and Transformation: A 12-Step Guide." Bill founded the recently launched Adult Survivors of Child Abuse Anonymous (ASCAA). Together they will lead tonight's discussion on STEP 4: "Made a searching and fearless moral inventory of ourselves."Most survivors, unless they are in a crisis, do not put much thought into what happened; the people, places, things, and reactions to events that have long-shaped their life. But if you have not yet taken a look at what traumata shaped your personality, behaviors, fears, and ways of responding in life, Step Four is a good opportunity to stop and think about it. Perhaps you have reached the day when you realize that you are not living your life as you really want to. Perhaps you feel a deep inner longing for healthy, secure attachment, love and a more kind relationship with yourself. You may experience a longing for life as you were told it was supposed to be but you have no evidence that you are living such a life. ~~ A child abuse survivor herself, Rivka Edery has been active in the 12 Step community for nearly 20 years. Bill Murray credits his 30 plus years of recovery to the spiritual power of the 12 Step program, too. ~~ Join us every two weeks to further examine a 12 Step approach to recovery from abuse. Next show we'll address STEP 5 & TRADITION 5. ~~ Please see our web page at: www.NAASCA.org/Trauma-12Step or write to Rivka at: rebecca.edery@gmail.com
