Many people need and want counseling, but not without a handful of fears. Counseling can be a scary thing. It’s a huge step for people to step into a unfamiliar territory. Know this -- real people go to counseling.
At some point in life one could say - I’m all messed up - in a sense. Many times the people who really have problems are the ones who don’t think they have any problems – and that’s a problem.
Putting an end to the needless delay of counseling is key. So let’s address the pros and cons to counseling and how to get started.

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.

While acknowledging their guilt, stress, and fatigue, he helps caregivers reaffirm emotional connections worn thin by the routine of daily care. This compassionate conversation will help families everywhere avoid burnout and preserve bonds during one of life's most difficult passages.
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.
NOVEMBER IS NATIONAL CAREGIVER AWARENESS MONTH
72% of U.S. Caregivers in Danger of Leaving Loved Ones without a Caregiver Entirely
NASHVILLE, TN — “I felt trapped. I felt despair that would hover over me for the next dozen years. This was a difficult place. I never imagined that the road would contain such suffering, loss, heartache, self-sacrifice, failure, and love,” says Peter Rosenberger.
In Hope for the Caregiver, Rosenberger describes the hell that his wife, Gracie went through – 78 operations, 60 physicians, a dozen hospitals and costs topping $9 million. He calls caregiving “One of the toughest jobs on earth.” There is a seldom-discussed seismic shift rumbling beneath the American economic and political mantle. By 2029, the youngest of the “baby boom” generation — those born between 1946 and 1964 — will reach retirement age. This group, over 76 million strong, added to those born prior to 1946, means over 90 million adults in America may soon need long-term caregivers. More than $1 trillion of wealth will be ultimately transferred from families because of the caring for these individuals.
“Make no mistake, if you love someone, you will be a caregiver. If you live long enough, you’ll need one,” says author and radio host, Peter Rosenberger, a 30-year caregiver himself. “But, here’s the real urgency: caregivers are usually family members—a massive unpaid workforce—who are in danger of burning out physically, emotionally, and fiscally before their loved ones. And with over 72% of the 65 million caregivers in the United States failing to see their own doctor, the most vulnerable among us are in jeopardy of being left without a caregiver entirely.
January Jones - Caregivers, Eldercare Consultant Becky Feola,
Becky will share the story of her late husband who had Huntington’s Disease (a degenerative brain disease) and how she cared for him for 11 years until his death at the young age of 49. This journey as a caregiver led her to start 2 eldercare businesses (one a non-profit and the other for profit) along with writing The Eldercare Consultant. With over ten years of experience and working with over 1,000 families, Becky has seen so many mistakes and successes families make and have when caring for an aging loved one.
One of the reasons Becky has been so successful and loved by her clients is that she has walked in her shoes. She is a safe person for them to talk to and confess what they consider to be their dark secrets filled with guilt, fear and anger — only to discover they aren’t alone with these secrets and that Becky has also carried the same weight.
Her work has given guidance and hope to so many who have a long journey ahead of them.
