This is Heart to Heart show today: Shirley and Maria will be bringing the good news, people and programs that are impacting children who have a parent in prison. Once a month, the show will be shedding light onto a topic that many others won't touch. America must be reminded that children are the future. Research also shows that children with incarcerated parents who have a relationship with those parents are better socially and emotionally adjusted and they are less likely to repeat the patterns of inter-generational incarceration. Please join Shirley & Maria as they talk about these issues. Your feedback and comments are welcomed.
This Sunday July 10th, 2011
Maria and Shirley will bring to the show 3 renowned psychologists who specialize in the fields that revolve around children who face horrors such as incarcerated parents, murder, mayhem and the like. The talk will be more about the macro issues behind the needs of children with incarcerated parents. We all here at “The Scales of Justice” are excited for the conversation with the three experts who will answer questions similar to these two:
(1). How and why trauma has an effect on us and how this effect carries on throughout our lives; different types of trauma; how to resolve this trauma
(2). What about the TRAUMA A CHILD WITH AN INCARCERATED PARENT FACES? What are some specific types; how it manifests in different age groups; how it can be recognized; how it is treated; what caregivers/incarcerated parents/other individuals involved in the children's lives (i.e. teachers, babysitters, priests, rabbis, etc.) to help minimize the trauma?
Stay Tuned for a great show and meet the experts below. May God continue to Bless the efforts of those fighting for change...
