  • Probation as a Profession - A Matter-of-Fact Training Seminar

    in Training

    This episode is the first of this series and Probation as a profession. This is a training seminar for CSRA probation based in Georgia. We will discuss a very short history of probation, compare that to modern day probation and discuss the general environment POs work in. Specialized caseloads, victimology, casework, service delivery and many other topics will be discussed with regards as to whether modern-day POs are Cops or Caseworkers. This is a training seminar based on Earlene Festervan's work entitled "Survival Guide for New Probation Officers" published by the American Correctional Association in 2000. This is a great field guide to working probation and more about the "How To's" and "Why's" of the PO process than statistics. Please come join us! Be advised, in advance, that anything said can be used for the training process without remuneration.

  • Groups part 2 on Surviving Dystopia

    in Education

    The second part in a series of shows highlighting the survival group.  With this, we include many different kinds of groups.  Last week we talked about the need for a group, the kinds of groups and whether or not to build or join one.  Moving forward with our discussion on groups let’s talk about the most basic things to either look for or set up in our groups.
    Briefly touching last week on something called a mission statement or set of goals that the group will have in place or will establish.  This is crucial to the setup and operation of the group.  This week we look into the questions surrounding this crucial first step in either establishment or finding an established group.
    The ABC’s is the most basic elements of the group;
    Who are the members of the group What is the goal of the group When do they meet or when a call to action would be appropriate Where is the location or is there a location Why do you want to either build or join these groups How do you go about either joining or establishing the group These questions are the beginnings of either finding or building your group
    Quoting Alfred Henry Lewis, “There are only nine meals between mankind and anarchy.”  It is important to note that this represents three days.  Knowing this should help you to determine the type of survival group, the rules, ideals, and requirements of the group; and ways you can make yourself a valued member of the group. Up next week: Part 3 – Knowing your role and the roles of others in the survival group. Visit Surviving Dystopia website HERE!
