Webinar: Facility-Based Behavior Management for Juveniles
Thinking About Corrections


Join this free webinar, Strategies for Effective Facility-Based Behavior Management, sponsored by the National Center for Youth in Custody.

From the NC4YC site:

Behavior management in juvenile detention and correctional facilities, and adult facilities, can be challenging.  Agencies charged with housing young people must meet youth’s needs while simultaneously ensuring staff and youth safety.  For the practitioner, questions abound: How do we engage residents in facility programming and services? How can we minimize and safely respond to incidents?  How do we best incentivize positive youth behavior? The next webinar in the NC4YC series on improving conditions of confinement will highlight strategies for effective facility-based behavior management.

Panelists include:

Michael H., youth advocate, college student, and former resident in juvenile facilities;

Richard Gentry, Director, Ingham County Youth Center, Lansing, MI;

Kathy Starkovich, Deputy Chief, 18th Judicial Circuit Court's Department of Probation & Court Services, Wheaton, IL;

Rodney Bouffard, Superintendent, Long Creek Youth Development Center, South Portland, ME.

Date:  November 14, 2012  2:00 - 3:30pm ET

Yes, NC4YC archives their webinars.  I don't know how quickly they go up, but a taped version should be available on this webpage.
