Correctional System: Responding to Juveniles with Substance Abuse and Mental Health Needs
In their own words:
In order to provide effective treatment and programming to youth with behavioral health needs, juvenile justice authorities and their partners must be equipped to quickly identify individuals who may have these needs, make referrals for full assessments and appropriate services, and provide services both while the youths are in custody and during the reentry process. Presenters focus on the use of assessment tools and other treatment needs, and matching youths to appropriate and effective programs and supports.

Hanging Out With Humane Exposures
Due to technical difficulties our debut Hangout On Air last Thursday did not archive to YouTube. It’s a real shame because we had an amazing conversation! I’ve discovered that many people had trouble that day with both their broadcasting and their archiving, so it was not just a glitch on our part.
In the meantime I have actually been able to interact with the Hangout team over at Google and am working on smoothing things out for our next one.
Marcy Axness will be joining us, along with a rotating array of special guests, for a series of conversations that touch on early home life, neuroscience, and juvenile justice as well as the ways that these topics intersect. It is our hope to create an archive of supplementary resources that build off the material presented in our books.
While we hope to get the kinks worked out of Hangouts we do have a backup plan: BlogTalkRadio. Either way we will make sure that these debates and conversations are available online, and easily shareable.
If you would like to suggest a guest, or submit yourself as one, please leave us a comment here or touch base with us through one of our social media profiles.
Once we get things rolling you should see a new show roughly once or twice a month!

Talking about the Juvenile Detention Alternative Initiative (JDAI)
Bart Lubow, Director of Juvenile Justice Strategy for the Annie E. Casey Foundation talks about the Juvenile Detention Alternative Initiative (JDAI) at an April 2012 conference in Houston dedicated to the topic.

The Man and His Birds
HUMANE EXPOSURES offers a penetrating look at society’s disenfranchised, questioning how long we can ignore the broken segments of our population, and at what cost. To aid in that endeavor, we have now launched our new YouTube channel, on which we will be sharing a wide variety of film clips and resources.
In The Fisher King, there is a scene with Tom Waits playing a disabled and homeless veteran. As he sits in his wheelchair, tin cup extended, he explains to Jeff Bridges’ character that “they’re paying so they don’t have to look.” It is a scene that really makes you think about how many things pass through your field of vision every day that you just don’t see. How many times have we assuaged your conscience with a few well-placed coins, and put it out of your mind? Probably so often that it escapes our notice that it’s not an object but a fellow human being that we’re “not seeing.”
Take a moment to recapture these escaped visions, look through the window we present to see a whole new world that exists uneasily in the same space as the one we walk through every day. For instance, how many people that walk past this man have actually noticed his amazing affinity for birds?
Video is a powerful tool for education. Seeing actual people and hearing their words often has a far greater impact than reading plain text. One proponent of this approach is Mark Horvath, whose work was featured this last Sunday on the front page of Google (as reported by The Huffington Post):
Activist and frequent HuffPost blogger Mark Horvath has dedicated years of his life to telling stories of the homeless through video (and an active twitter account @hardlynormal).
Despite an active following, Horvath’s message hasn’t quite made it into the mainstream. That’ll change this Sunday, when Horvath will be taking over YouTube’s homepage ‘with videos that smash stereotypes about America’s most forgotten citizens.’
If a picture is worth a thousand words, then how many is a video worth?
