    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.

    TREATMENT and RECOVERY: OCGRadio One Year Annversary.............

    in Self Help

    It's been a year since we went "live" with this idea to do a live podcast, talking about substance abuse treatment, recovery, Daytop, OCG, and all things in between as it relates to recovery.....or not!  Our 1st show (10/24/14) hastily came together to honor Daytop's founder, the Monsignor William B. O'Brien, who passed away on 10/19/2014. Although we didn't officially start our recovery themed podcast until November 18th, 2014, in reflection, it was fitting that our first show was honoring a man who made recovery possible for so many. We will do a little year in review.

    T- Cell Immunotherapy in Myeloma Treatment w/ Dr. Ivan Borrello, John Hopkins

    in Health

    A lot of research is being done in immunotherapy for myeloma that is leading to new treatment options for patients. Dr. Ivan Borrello of John Hopkins is working on a completely, novel approach. This involves enhancing white blood cells to create a customized immunotherapy for patients. The T-cells from the patient's bone marrow are extracted, enhanced, and expanded in the lab, and are given back to the patient, allowing for a more specific immune response targeting the proteins found on their myeloma cells. The use of bone marrow T cells is more precise than the use of cells from the blood which makes this therapy more effective. Join our myeloma panel talk on this new area of research, as they discuss the difference between CAR-T cells and MILs (marrow infilterating lymphocytes), and how body's natural immune cell growth can be used to fight myeloma.
