Group work in correctional facilities?

2009

Hello -
 
I am wondering if anyone has any resources / information regarding running group workshops in correctional facilities; specifically paying attention to issues related to gang involvement. Any thoughts or ideas would be welcome and greatly appreciated!
 
Thanks,
Karrie-Noelle Plohman

Kerrie,
 
I did group work with Aggression Replacement Training (ART) with juvenile offenders. At first they're very suspect, trying to figure out what type of trick I am up to. But after a few sessions they realize I am only trying to teach them pro-social life skills, to correct thinking errors (cognitive distortions) and anger reduction. This works well with gang involved youth.
 
Call or email if you want further information.
