Effective Relationships in a Correctional Environment
This workshop focuses on face-to-face interaction, the make and break point of human relationships, especially as they unfold in a correctional environment. All participants in the correctional system, including both inmates and providers, struggle with social marginalization. Underlying all criminal activity are developmental trauma fostered by cultural, racial, and social factors that foster alienation and progressive marginalization from productive society. Moving from marginalization toward effective relationships based on trust and mutual responsibility is the enduring challenge for everyone in the correctional environment where inmates face hopelessness and providers face burnout. This workshop focuses on face-to-face interaction and draws from Relational Cultural Theory and human learning principles to understand and demonstrate the movement from social marginalization to "growth-fostering relationships." With extensive video clips, this training will demonstrate how face-to-face viewpoints and personal power influence how people engage and disengage with each other. Participants will gain an understanding how their personal presence is the key factor in effective relationships in whatever service they are providing.
