    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.

    Patients and Physicians Network about Kidney Cancer

    in Health

    The annual Kidney Cancer Symposium was held this year in Miami, Florida.  It was chaired by Dr. Toni Choueiri of Dana-Farber/Harvard Cancer Institute in Boston, and contained a wealth of information for physicians, both urologists and oncologists dealing with kidney cancer.

    This year for the first time in many years more patients and patient advocates were included in the mix.  In the past Joyce has been one of 4-5 patients invited to help report the meeting, under the general editorship of Mike Lawing.  This year, in part to celebrate the 25th anniversary oCaleb f the founding of KCA by a kidney cancer patient, more patients were invited to attend, including two from outside the United States: Caleb from Nigeria and Juanita Ruiz from Peru.

    Billy Foster, a long-time KCA supporter and jazz musician, was on hand to provide wonderful music for the reception.  He has given us permission to broadcast an interview he recorded with Caleb Egwuenu, founder and president of Stand Up to Cancer Naija, http://www.su2c9ja.org  In Nigeria many people still believe that cancer is "juju" or some harmful magical power inflicted by someone else, or as a result of something you did wrong.  The biggest challenge to managing any cancer is that diagnoses are usually after the cancer is already advanced to a late stage.  For Nigeria as for most developing countries, the management of late stage cancer is beyond the skills and budgets of the health care systems.  Their only hope of managing cancer is to find it at early stages.

    Why One-Third of Hospitals will Close by 2020

    in Health

    David Houle and Jonathan Fleece are co-authors of the book The New Health Age: The Future of Health Care in America.  Three years ago they co-authored a provocative short blog post in KevinMD, predicting that by 2020 one-third of American hospitals would close.  http://www.kevinmd.com/blog/2012/03/onethird-hospitals-close-2020.html

    They pointed to four factors for this:

    First, America must bring down its crippling healthcare costs, and hospitals are one of the most expensive components of the system.
    Second, statistically speaking hospitals are just about the most dangerous places to be in the United States. Three times as many people die every year due to medical errors in hospitals as die on our highways.
    Third, hospital customer service is abysmal. Where else do you have to wait four hours for service?
    Fourth, health care reform will make connectivity, electronic medical records, and transparency commonplace in health care, and customers will be able to do some comparison shopping for the first time.

    We have invited them to speak with us about how we are doing along that path.  Have hospitals taken notice and changed their ways? or are we still on a timeline toward closure of one-third of American hospitals?  And if that is true, how will we receive our care in the new age?

    David Houle is a futurist, advisor and speaker and Jonathan Fleece is a health care attorney, advisor, and speaker.

    Corrections Counseling - Juvenile Offender Suicide and Treatment Programs

    in Training

    Brought to you by The American Public Safety Training Institute (TAPSTI) www.tapsti.org, this 2 hour session will
    address juvenile suicide within juvenile detention and correctional facilities. Incarcerated juvenile offenders have a 400% greater risk than the adolescents who are free in our local communities. 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.
