For example, in an article of Academy of Choice a Spring Branch high school by Laura Isensee uses healing circle programs as a new way to discipline students. The healing circle is used to understand the people that were involved in the issue and understand the situation. The healing circle is a way to solve the issues that occurred and have a suitable way of fixing the offense committed. In Academy of Choice they have leadership classes in which they do simulations of the healing circle with students to teach them how a healing circle is processed and finished. Laura Isenesee states, “Students and teachers here have used circles to deal with other problems, like heading off gang fights before they happen or making nasty rumors disappear.”

Hey Aurelo, great work on explaining the Miami-Dade Correctional Department and their boot-camp program. I didn 't know that most boot-camp programs are juvenile convicts around the ages of 14 to 24. I can imagine that this program can help these juveniles since they bring professionals to speak with them, as far as bringing in a criminal defense attorney who was once arrested and even went to the boot camp program. It 's shows that their are people want to help these juveniles in improving their life and plan them a better future. Like your example with Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson show and how he visits them and talk about his trouble pass.
La Greta, I really enjoyed reading your post as I have been a part of such programs since I began my career as a police officer 18 years ago. I started by conducting parole checks on violent offenders and quickly learned how little they were prepared to return to society. You are very correct in that an offender’s re-entry starts the minute they begin their sentence. This is going to require the cooperation and collaboration of the prison system, probation and parole, law enforcement, prosecutors, social services and public housing. The money is out there in the form of federal grants and it just takes a little work to find them on the internet.
For example, there is a group meeting for female teenagers may talk about their concerns of school and home life. In addition, on a weekly basis, CARE with the cooperation of the Murrieta and Temecula Police department’s program, Police Activities League(PAL) local law enforcement officers reach out to the youth who are at risk or had negative interactions with police officers. This program gives the youth an opportunity to see police officers in a different setting and experience positive interactions with local police officers. In addition, CARE operates a second-hand store, located in Temecula on Jefferson Street (by Jack in The Box.) Janelle, told me that Alli’s Resale Shop is named after Alli Jacobs, a resident of Temecula, who lost her life as a result of domestic violence in 1993.
The best way to reintegrate offenders into society is to ensure that each offender has at minimum a high school GED, and a trade that he or she can use to become a functional member of society. At Coffield we offer a number of programs that will help offenders become better members of society after they are released from prison. The biggest program we have is the education department which contains class and testing for the GED program, trade schooling such as welding, horticulture, auto mechanics and college courses provided by Trinity Valley Community College. I have met several inmates that have decided to leave the gang life behind them and better themselves in order to make something out of their lives other than being a criminal the rest of their live and these men have earned a college degree. As a correctional officer, it is a good feeling to look back on an inmate’s life and for him to tell you where he went wrong and for him to take steps in his life to change his future so he isn’t just another
When I think of children who have experienced trauma, I am automatically drawn to the Juvenile Justice System. This lead me to pursue a second degree in criminal justice. Statistics show over 1 million children enter the juvenile justice system each year. The systems goal is to react to juveniles in ways that protect the community, hold the offenders accountable, and enhance their ability to live productively and responsibly within the community. After receiving
Twenty years ago Arnold Goldstein came up with the concept of, Aggression Replacement Training, also known as ART. Over the past two decades the concept of replacing violent, aggressive, or antisocial behavior with prosocial skills has been proven to be very effective. I have chosen to incorporate the same concept of replacing aggressive behavior, but I’d like to tailor it around aggressive juveniles, my program would be called, Juvenile Aggression Replacement and Education. The main goals of the program would be to teach juveniles how to control their emotions and violent out spurts, reduce aggression and violence amongst the juveniles in the program, teach juveniles “prosocial skills” that can replace the aggressive behavior, and reduce recidivism amongst juveniles with a past crime history and prevent any future crimes for the juveniles who do not have a criminal record. The program would be targeted towards anyone between the ages of eleven to seventeen, who have been found to be very aggressive and violent, minus those accused of murder or sexual assualt.
Because adolescents are often mandated by the court or by their parents, YES Community Counseling Center uses an intervention called Motivational Engagement Therapy and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy 5 (MET/CBT 5) to engage their adolescent clients. MET/CBT 5 is an evidence-based practice called. It is a 5-week program in which adolescents are educated about the consequences of drug and alcohol use, skills for resisting drug and alcohol, and skills for talking about their issues. When a client is involved in the MET/CBT 5 program, they are also involved in the Psycho-Educational Group. The Psycho-Educational Group is a minimum of twelve weeks, during which they discuss issues surrounding substance abuse.
