    Corrections Counseling - Behavioral Management in Community Corrections

    in Training

    Brought to you by The American Public Safety Training Institute (TAPSTI) www.tapsti.org, this 2 hour session will be reviewing the effectiveness of community-based supervision. Today we have drug courts, gun courts, domestic violence courts, mental health courts, boot camps, intensive supervision, residential treatment, and so on. We really do not have enough research on how effective the supervision is of offenders under different programs. Using Albert Robert's work entitled "Correctional Counseling and Treatment" we will take a look at existing literature on programs and supervision, we will identify different theoretical frameworks for new models for offender supervision, and describe a model of behavioral management for offenderscorrectional counseling and rehabilitation within the prison system that uses engagement, early change, sustained change, and reinforcers over a period of 18 months to give us the end result we hope will be realized - an offender who will not reoffend.

    Luke and The Actions of the Apostles 3 - Apostle E. Cooper - ELRC-COLG Inc

    in Christianity

    The synagogue was the local center of worship. They synagogue ruler was responsible for administration, building maintenance, and worship supervision, It would have been quite unusual for a respected synagogue ruler to fall at the feet of an itinerant preacher and beg him to heal his daughter. Jesus honored this man's request by his humbled faith. 


    Many people surrounded Jesus as He made His way toward Jairus's house. It was hard for this woman to break her way through the crowd but she did just that and the result was phenominal...

He has created an externship where licensed acupuncturists can practice in a western medical setting and under the supervision of the Perlmutter staff and Ryan, they will "gain tools to, safely treat pain,nausea,insomnia,anxiety, constipation,neuropathy and more”. Ryan tells us,”After seven years as an acupuncturist….Ive helped a lot of people in pain and my days are filled with meaningful conversations with my patients”.

    Supernatural, Spiritual & the Nature of Time

    in Christianity

    Three Realms of Reality Chart


    Supernatural Environment


    The supernatural realm can become a distraction, as many believe that it is the same thing as the spiritual realm. So we often mistake what happens there, and what we see, as being 100% true and infallible. Thus, we can experience visions, manifestations of God, angels and demons, etc., and falsely conclude that there is absolute authority and clarity in them.


    Supernatural Warfare


    Supernatural warfare, often erroneously called spiritual warfare, is waged between the inhabitants of the supernatural realm, angels, demons and humans. Warfare here is strictly under the control and direct supervision of God, He is sovereign as much here as anywhere.


    Soulical Warfare


    Soulical warfare refers specifically to us humans, and involves overcoming the world, the flesh and the devil in our individual lives. These enemies can only be overcome through spiritual weapons made available through dependence on God.


    What is “Supernatural”?


    The supernatural realm is simply a temporary plane of existence that God created for the expression of His love. We perceive the supernatural realm with our supernatural (or soulical) senses, so it is important to finetune these faculties.


    Supernatural vs. Spiritual


    By elevating aspects of the supernatural realm, like angels and demons, we give them much too much influence and authority in and over our lives. We will only begin to walk in authority over these areas in as much as we believe we have the authority.


    It’s About Time!


    It’s important to know what age we are living in so we can better understand what God is doing in, to and through us, and not be fighting against Him.

    Warfare: Supernatural versus Spiritual

    in Christianity

    3 Realms Chart


    Supernatural Environment


    The supernatural or soulical environment consists of those areas between the natural and the spiritual. Though this is one realm, it contains many regions. In order to understand our beliefs we can say that the supernatural realm is where the angels and demons dwell, also described as heaven and hell. We can also say that the realm to which our soul relates is the soulical environment. Our soulical senses work just as well (or as poorly) in heaven as in hell. God reigns supreme, and nothing happens here without His express permission, just as in the natural realm.


    We often mistake what happens there, and what we see, as being 100% true and infallible. Thus, we can experience visions, manifestations of God, angels and demons, etc., and falsely conclude that there is absolute authority and clarity in them.


    Supernatural Warfare


    Supernatural warfare, often erroneously called spiritual warfare, is waged between the inhabitants of the supernatural realm. This would be angels, demons and humans. As in all areas, warfare here is strictly under the control and direct supervision of God.


    Soulical Warfare


    Soulical warfare refers specifically to us humans, and must be fought with weapons more powerful than the field of battle. The soulical battles involve overcoming the world, the flesh and the devil in our individual lives.


    What is “Supernatural”?


    A temporary plane of existence that God created for the expression of His love, perceived with our supernatural (or soulical) senses.


    Supernatural vs. Spiritual


    By elevating aspects of the supernatural realm, like angels and demons, we give them much too much influence and authority in and over our lives.

    Typical Actions in Probate of a Slaveholding Estate with David E. Paterson

    in History

     


    Public historian David E. Paterson studies people who lived in nineteenth-century Upson County, Georgia, especially those who experienced slavery and Reconstruction. A civilian employee of the US Navy by day, he spends his leisure hours researching and writing local history.  David has helped manage the Slave Research Forum at AfriGeneas.com since about 2001.  David emigrated to the U.S. in 1958 from Scotland and was granted U.S. citizenship in 1975.  He lives in Norfolk, Virginia.


    We will discuss the most fruitful probate records for slavery research in most states, for the period about 1800 to 1865.   The discussion may be less useful for the colonial period, or for the records of Louisiana or Spanish colonial Florida whose laws and processes derived from different legal traditions.  In addition, David will describe the process flow from one record to the next – the purpoe of each record – and what kinds of slavery-related information maybe found in the record. Particular attention will focus on records that are sometimes overlooked in guides or how-to books; especially annual returns and vouchers.  Researchers may find records of a deceased slaveholder separated by many years – in cases when a “life estate” came back under supervision of the court as a “residual estate.”  Finally we will show the connections and similarities between probate records and guardians’ records.

    Linda Babulic Author of the Book Zest Your life


    Linda Babulic is that woman… the guest you want to sit next to at a dinner party, the speaker who captures your attention, the coach who tailors your solution and makes it all about you, just when it matters most.


    At a pivotal time in life, in the midst of great personal loss, Linda began making the hard choices on her own. She has honed the coping mechanisms and survival skills she acquired in her youth as a way to help others face their challenges and move forward.


    In 1995, Linda launched Leadership Centre Canada, a corporate training company. Her flagship program: “Fundamentals of Supervision” was an instant success with small, medium and large corporations across Canada with hundreds of students learning her leadership techniques and tools.


    Linda’s unique skill is her ability to make people feel safe as they transition from where they are to where they want to be. She serves the person who wakes up one day wondering, “Is this all there is? I thought there’d be more.”


    From one-on-one consults, to workshops, keynote speeches and books, Linda targets our growing need for connection and validation. Her flagship “ZEST” program promotes and serves anyone seeking greater meaning, deeper understanding and the kind of joy that comes from the heart. Linda describes living a truly zesty life as Zeroing-in (on your dreams), Expecting (to receive all you deserve), achieving Success (as you define it), and Transcending (to your higher self).
