A place where all corrections professionals can interact and collaborate.
I am also interested in your approach, and would, as others have indicated, appreciate receiving any training materials or resources you're able to share.

How true, How true. This is true for all training but even more when it comes to matters of the mind.
It is one thing to teach a student how inmates manipulate officers and other inmates for that matter, but
Having a student understand the mind behind the skill of manipulation is their only real defense.

Thanks, I will take a look at the recommended.
I have actually read that book myself, it has all the basics and is a good starting point.
Thanks for the interest! I am working on pulling together some materials and some names of people I know who have used this approach. I hope to have a post ready with materials, links, and contacts by next week.
I am going to gather together some materials and contacts and make a post next week. I will also send an email to anyone who has asked here.
Thanks for the interest,
I look forward to reviewing whatever you and others are willing to share.
I recently was in a training where the video on Inmate Manipulation from the Minnesota DOC was used and would really like to either download a copy or get a dvd...can you advise on how this might be possible?
Erin, my name is Teresa and I would like to have a copy of the article. my email address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
I look forward to hearing from you Teresa
Hi: Mr Burrows, I am a professional development training for correctional department across the nation, I currently offering trainings in Motivational Interviewing, and PREA Prison Rape Elimination Act. I would appy to send you a information package and possibly speak with you about furture trainings.
I am a PREA coordinator and am interested in what you have in training. I am also the facilitator for a National REsource PREA Workgroup and am interested in asking you to be a member. We are states and agencies sharing resources in all things PREA to assist each other in becoming PREA compliant and more important making sure the offenders in our facilities are safe.
