In my opinion I think this article is well done but there are a few issues. One of the issues is that she does not have the experience she is just a teacher. Another issue is that she misses a few points on why the teens have done their crimes like their family backgrounds and other issues in their life. So basically it is a good article but there is no experience with the lady.
(3) A challenge that seems to be prevalent in elder abuse is that it flies under the radar. A lack of awareness and preparation appears to be the culprit, so the abuse may be missed by people who are able to help because they did not know what to look for, or how to intervene. Therefore, I thought it was a good idea to give law enforcement agencies a seminar on abuse against older adults and the implementation of the app for officers who are not able to take a class since they are usually the first responders in an abuse case. Also, the idea

A school-based group conferencing program reported that 70 percent of those in Group Confernceing avoided suspension. 95% of youths either receive a penalty or make an apology. New Zealand's Children, Young Persons and Families Act of 1989 established new procedures for state intervention into families and the lives of children and young people, replacing many court processes with family group conferencing (p. 8). Their studies found that Group Confernceing dramatically reduced the court load from up to 13,000 cases per year in 1990 (p. 8). In Circles, the Hollow Water First Nation Community Holistic Circle Healing Process stated that ninety-four individuals were diverted within the communities. Numerous studies show that offenders who took part in RJ programs spent less time incarcerated than did their counterparts. This indicates how effective RJ programs are to divert offenders from punitive justice system. A school-based circle project in Minnesota succeeded in reducing behavioral referrals by 75% over the three years of its Circles
Furthermore, my visit to the open Alcoholic anonymous group was very informed and it provided me an understanding and knowledge on this specific population. It provided me an opportunity to understand the process of a group meeting. The impression I had when I left was that even though these people were affected by alcoholic, they are hopefully and determined to overcome this challenge in their life.
While reading The Family Crucible, the authors made it feel like I was watching a life-time television series. There were several high points and low points during the family therapy session that left me unsure of how the show would end. This book takes you on a journey using family counseling to help a family heal and communicate better with one another. I thought it was interesting how this systematic therapy took place in a time where therapy was looked at as taboo. Many times in that era family therapy was not an option. The main focus was on the family member with the issue and not on the parents or other family members. In the book the authors used different theories and approaches during the counseling sessions which were quite interesting. This process after time enabled the family to look at the journey they were on in order to understand how the family, as a whole, should function.

As I mentioned in my reflection last week, I attended a Juvenile Court Diversion meeting on Thursday. Four trained volunteers from the Dover community make up the “Diversion Committee”. The committee members meet with first-time offenders of non-violent crimes who under the age of 18 who live in Dover. After asking the offender to describe what they did and to take responsibility for their actions, the committee talks privately about how to best hold this individual accountable. After coming to an agreement, the offender and the committee members form a contract that outlines tasks and/or expectations for the offender to meet. The creator of this program and director for the Dover Teen Center, Steve, also attends.

The information that the author provides about true crime and real life is powerful. Although at times some of the material is graphic, I think the harshness is what some readers need to hear so that it grabs their attention. It is easy to get twisted up in the day to day living, everyone in their own bubbles, people tend to get relaxed with their surroundings and forget that danger could possibly be just a foot away. People can’t stay at home because they are afraid of the outside world, but they can arm themselves with tips and information that Sargent Dianna Thomas gave. Be aware, be smart, and live long. This book should go great with the topic of the class, or at least I hope it does, I would like to be able to discuss these topics
