Conflict Engagement and ADR in the News

California Wraparound Program Reduces Juvenile Recidivism by Focusing on Mental Health

By  Sara Tiano (12/5/16. Youth Today Photo from Pixaboy).
Manuel Dircio, 20, a business administration student at Fullerton College boasts a 4.0 GPA.

He is also a recovering alcoholic with a history of arrest and incarceration in juvenile detention — not quite what you’d expect from a seemingly model college student with a stellar grade point.

Dircio credits the Youthful Offender Wraparound program (YOW), which he says “helped [him] grow successfully.” It’s what’s known as a full-service partnership (FSP) in Orange County, California, that uses a nontraditional approach to help kids identified as having “complex needs.”  Find out more about the program HERE.

Listening zone opens in downtown Santa Cruz

By Jondi Gumz (12/06/16; Santa Cruz Sentinel)

Holiday shoppers strolling Pacific Avenue downtown Friday heard the Great Morgani play his accordion, as has been his custom for 20 years, and saw what could be the start of a new tradition, the “Listening Zone.”

Lenette Cutter and Shauna Mora sat in chairs on the sidewalk next to a sign that said, “People Talk, People Listen, Things Change.”

Two empty chairs awaited anyone who had something to share. 

Cutter, 68, is a retired high-tech project manager overseeing care of her mother who has Alzheimer’s.

A certified mediator, Cutter brought the idea to Mora, executive director of the Conflict Resolution Center of Santa Cruz County, and the listening zone was inaugurated Nov. 11.

“It’s a way to walk our talk,” said Mora, noting that after the election, “There was a lot of hurt. We realized we weren’t doing a very good job of listening.” Find out more about the listening zone HERE.

Students forge a path for restorative justice

By April Johnston (12/05/16. Penn State News. Image from Pixabay)

They sat in a loose circle in a high-security prison — victims, offenders, facilitators and several students from Penn State — and waited for the one named Christopher to tell his story.

Christopher’s fellow inmates encouraged him as he hung his head and fidgeted in his seat: You got this. We all have a story.

Finally, Christopher shook the memory loose. He was driving with his 2-year-old son in the back seat. He ran a stop sign. Another car T-boned him. He survived. His son did not. And because he had marijuana in his system, he ended up here.

A lot of tears followed the telling. A lot of supportive words. A lot of tissues.

Penn State Beaver student Dominic Rossi was floored.

“Holy (crap), this works,” he thought. “This can actually work.” Find out more about how Penn State students are implementing the restorative justice program HERE.

The importance of trust

By Glenn Fubler (12/06/16; The Royal Gazette. Image from Pixabay)

“In the depths of winter, I finally learned that within me lay an invincible summer”

Albert Camus

In December 1977, as a young man living temporarily in London, I had an experience that resonates with that metaphor above. I began to discover an unconquerable aspect of my self. It eventually became apparent to me that this is also available to everyone. It is revealed to us as we begin to understand that we cannot really be defeated — regardless of the nature of any challenge — once we are able to “trust” ourselves, others and the universe. Of course, this doesn’t mean we always “get our own way”.

It was during 1977 that I began to appreciate that my ability to trust leverages my access to this invincibility within myself. Of course, each individual’s life journey is unique but they eventually intersect with so many others. London was a crossroads because some of these strands came together there during 1977. Learn more about the importance of trust HERE.

Supportive justice values crime victims

Author not credited (12/05/16. Belpher News)

It can take a lifetime to repair the emotional damage caused by crime but good quality professional support helps vulnerable people take those tentative steps towards recuperation with greater confidence. No one deserves to become a victim of crime but victims deserve the best possible response to their situation and this is something I’m determined to make happen across Derbyshire. There are lots of ways to achieve better victims’ care but the priority, for me, is to help people recover from their experience and move forwards with their lives.
