Go Beyond the Webinar: Insights and Strategies into Protecting Youth from the Impacts of Violence

first_imgBy: Bari Sobelson, MS, LMFT & David Lee Sexton, Jr.Our March 22, 2018 webinar was facilitated by Dr. Lauren Marlotte of the Division of Behavioral Health and Nathanson Family Resilience Center at the University of California Los Angeles. In this webinar, 3 broad areas of violence that impact youth were discussed- bullying, relationship violence in teens, and school shootings.  Dr. Marlotte shared highlights of all three of these types of violence but tied them all together by talking about overall risk and resilience factors, taking a family systems approach, and ways to build resilience in families including some resources. Below are some insights, questions and answers, and resources gained from this engaging and helpful webinar.InsightsHere are some insights that the participants and our team took away from the webinar.Adult logic may not be the best fit when looking for solutions to address and combat bullying. Lauren led us through a series of scenarios, asking for our thoughts on the ways in which we would help our children navigate a bullying situation. Many of us were surprised to find that the adult logic we were applying to these scenarios were not, in fact, the best ways to handle them.1/3 teens experience violence with a dating partner. In addition to sharing this alarmingly high statistic, Lauren shared that girls and women between 16 and 24 years old are experiencing the highest rates of Intimate Partner Violence.There are negative consequences for both the bully and person being bullied. Children who are bullied are at higher risk of experiencing negative physical health, mental health, and school consequences such as anxiety, depression, PTSD, low self-esteem, physical health problems, and more. Children who are bullies are at higher risk for engaging in violence and other risky behaviors later in life such as misusing substances engaging in delinquent behaviors, carrying a weapon, and being convicted of a crime or receiving a citation as an adult.School shootings affect more than just the people at the school. It’s not just the school personnel, children, and families of the school who are affected. Anyone who hears about the shooting on the news is also affected.Questions and AnswersThe participants were highly engaged, asking important and relevant questions throughout the webinar. Below are some of the questions by the participants and the answers supplied by Dr. Marlotte.Participant: Why would bullies engage in sexual activity earlier?Dr. Marlotte: “My best explanation would be that kids who engage in bullying are at higher risk of negative consequences [such as] being negatively influenced by their peer groups [or] having less parental supervision or involvement… teens are still developing the frontal lobe, the centers of their brain important in decision making and thinking things out… they may be more likely to be impulsive and make reckless decisions. This is a guess as to why these things might be correlated.”Participant: If children tend to “freeze” and have trouble with a comeback, what would be good advice?Dr. Marlotte: “When a child is under stress, they may experience fight, flight or freeze… That’s why having some sort of preparation to coach children through using these skills can help them with those fight, flight, and freeze responses. Sometimes just acknowledging that that’s the way our brains and our bodies respond to stress can help children understand why they might experience stress in a certain way. Maybe they silently take a breath and then use one of the teasing comments and walk away from the bully. Practice and rehearsal of the bullying strategies, paired with the practice and rehearsal of some of the emotional regulation strategies, can be paired together to be able to use those strategies to the best of the child’s ability.”Participant: This might be difficult for children with developmental disabilities who have trouble with social skills even in the best situations. How would we advise them to handle the situation? Would a bullying social story be a good option?Dr. Marlotte: “I attended a training by [a professional] who developed a curriculum on social skills for children with Autism and she writes in her manual [that] the nonverbal teasing comebacks, are sometimes the most difficult for kids with developmental disabilities. In particular, she works a lot with kids with Autism… They may not have the same spatial awareness about what an eye roll feels like or looks like, or their face may end up making a face they are not intending to when they are trying to look standoffish. So, absolutely! Doing a role play, a rehearsal… I’d say starting with a social story and seeing if the child is able to apply this to their real life as well to make sure they can make that leap. I also think that this is a wonderful thing to do as a prevention strategy. There are lots of ways to have conversations about bullying even if it’s not an issue that comes up.”Participant: What is a good bullying curriculum that can be utilized in schools? Are there any to train teachers to help with bullying prevention in their classrooms?Dr. Marlotte: “I would recommend the stopbullying.gov website (specifically https://www.stopbullying.gov/prevention/at-school/index.html) to find out more information about prevention and evidence-based anti-bullying programs. I would also recommend that schools adopt a social emotional learning approach or curriculum, such as RULER (http://ei.yale.edu/ruler/) or the Families OverComing Under Stress (FOCUS) Resilience Curriculum (https://nfrc.ucla.edu/FOCUS).” Participant: How often is it is a “lone” bully and how often do they have back-ups in their bullying?Dr. Marlotte:  “Since the bully tends to want to get attention and social notoriety, I think there’s typically people around… There might be one kid who’s the instigator or the primary bully, and they may be able to suck other people into what they’re doing rather than having a group of kids decide to be bullies all together. There’s typically a leader with others who are either bystanders or occasionally jumping in.”Participant: Sometimes using the term abusive to a teen doesn’t resonate with them as they do not consider what is going on in their or their friend’s relationship abusive. Possibly breaking it down with some defining- controlling, jealousy, isolating from friends, etc.Dr. Marlotte:   “Yes, using specific examples… Sometimes, it lands a little bit better to say healthy vs, unhealthy [or] acceptable vs unacceptable. If there’s other types of words or language that you’re hearing from your teen, using their language can be very helpful. We have a trauma clinic here and we see a wide variety of families… I’ve had families experience some very traumatic situations and they’re saying, ‘Well, I don’t have it as bad as this situation that was in the media’ or ‘I didn’t experience this type of situation’. So they may not actually consider themselves trauma survivors. So then if THEY choose to not identify themselves in that way, I don’t push that. I talk about the stress impact of their experiences that they have had and allow them to use their own language around that while acknowledging that what they’ve experienced is going to have a large impact on them. But if there are certain words that don’t resonate, that is absolutely fine.”Participant: How do we counter the culture of meanness/name calling/bullying that has developed, been promoted, and modeled in our country in the last couple of years? There is a trickle-down effect from what is modeled from adults and what children (and adults) see on the news on a daily basis.Dr. Marlotte: “It’s important to have conversations with clients/children about meanness and name calling that is present in the media. Positive, supportive adults model appropriate behaviors and discuss and address inappropriate behaviors highlighted in the news and popular culture. Don’t read or watch news sources that engage in name calling or are clearly biased. When mean behavior is observed, engage adolescents in a discussion around the behavior and explore other ways of expressing one’s self while being respectful. This helps reminds adults, too, that being mean or bullying behaviors are unacceptable. Point out examples of positive behaviors that are portrayed as well. Just like we ask parents to ‘catch your child being good’ and provide praise, we should also be in tune with when the media is respectful and uses effective communication.” ResourcesThroughout the webinar, Dr. Marlotte and the Family Development Team shared a plethora of resources.

Former Auburn Player Sentenced to 15 Years For Robbery

Antonio Goodwin, a former Auburn football player from Atlanta, was sentenced to 15 years in prison for the March 2011 armed home-invasion robbery that also resulted in charges against three teammates from the 2010 National Championship team.”I want to apologize for my action and my poor judgment,” Goodwin said before the sentencing. ”In the time I was at home, I had time to think about it and I’ve become a better person and a better decision-maker.”Goodwin was convicted in April of first-degree robbery in the March 2011 home invasion. The occupants of a mobile home told police they were robbed at gunpoint. No one was injured.Goodwin’s former teammates Mike McNeil, Dakota Moseley and Shaun Kitchens await trial. McNeil was the starting safety on Auburn’s national championship squad.Defense attorney Lauryn Lauderdale requested a probation hearing and said she planned to appeal. Lauderdale said she would also apply for a split sentence if probation is denied, shortening his prison time.Goodwin, who’s from Atlanta, and family held hands in prayer in the hallway while awaiting the judge’s ruling, which was in the middle of state sentencing guidelines of 117-255 months.At times Goodwin laid his head on the table while family members and an Atlanta pastor spoke on his behalf.Hughes acknowledged that Goodwin’s actions were ”inconsistent somewhat with his history.””It is not uncommon for a terrible offense to happen and not be a habit,” he said. ”The one offense often does have tragic consequences.”Lauderdale had argued that Goodwin was impaired after smoking synthetic marijuana, or spice, the night of the robbery with Kitchens, Moseley and other teammates. read more

Inside the NBA Shaqtin A Fool Vol 3 Episode

Shaquille O’Neal and “Inside the NBA” are back with a new season of “Shaqtin’ A Fool.” Take a look at this week’s nominees in the first episode of the what has to be the funniest NBA show on TV.In its debut episode, “Shaqtin’ A Fool” regulars Kendrick Perkins and JaVale Magee make an early appearance. Perkins does what he does best, and on a fast break attempts to lob an alley-oop pass to a teammate, but throws the ball out of bounds.  Magee, who some believe is trying to get on  “Shaqtin’ A Fool,”  somehow ends up on a player’s back during a fastbreak.Two rookies made their “Shaqtin’ A Fool” debut, who probably won’t be segment regulars like Magee and Perkins.Later, a cameraman made it on the list because he tries to play it cool after his leg falls asleep resulting in a funky two set dance.Watch the video above and vote for your nominee for the Best Foolish Moment here. read more

CABINET SHUFFLE IN TCI CONFIRMED

Recommended for you Related Items:cabinet, donhue gardiner, george lightbourne, Portia stubbs smith, premier rufus ewing, shuffle, washington misick Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp TCI to renew Storm & Flood insurance Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppProvidenciales, 08 Jan 2015 – Confirmed today by the Premier in his press conference; that yes there is a reassignment of ministerial portfolios for some. While the country’s leader explained the roles were swapped and shifted to bring a freshness and new energy to the ministries, the atmosphere in the room was not energetic. Only the Premier offered comment about the change… no one else talked about the transitions and only the Premier expounded on ideas he has as the now Minister for Health and Human Services; and only after being asked. Nonetheless, the country’s leader, Hon Dr. Rufus Ewing was right to remark that this is not an unusual thing for governments in the Caribbean to move some around, adding that this is all for the better. Unchanged are Hon Washington Misick and Hon Donhue Gardiner who keep Finance & Investment and Border Control & Labour respectively. Also Hon Akierra Missick keeps her portfolio for Education, Youth, Sports, Culture and Library Services. New portfolios were handed to Member from the Bight, Hon Porsha Smith who heads up the Ministry of Tourism; the Premier shared this is ideal for Hon Smith who has a background in banking and hospitality. HHHon Amanda Missick will take on Government Support Services; no longer to Hon George Lightbourne. Dr. Ewing shared he sees this as ideal because Hon Amanda is keen on construction projects. Minister Lightbourne will go to Environment and Home Affairs but will continue to oversee the Telecommunications Commission, at least until April when new budget year changes kick in. Media questions led to repeated explanations by the Premier that all of his Cabinet welcome the challenge, and that the re-assignments are not a reflection of dissatisfaction in anyone’s work.

Government jumped the gun over Rubis leak risks

first_img Bahamian music legend gunned down at home in Turks and Caicos Related Items:bahamas, rubis, Save The Bays Bi-lateral talks with Bahamas to resume, UK gives green light to high-level TCI delegation Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Hurricane Jose Not A Threat to The Bahamas, For Now Recommended for you Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppNassau, 01 Aug 2015 – The government displayed poor judgment and risked giving false hope to Marathon residents by releasing incomplete findings on the health risks associated with the Rubis fuel spill on Robinson Road, Vanessa Haley-Benjamin said.Lending her support to last week’s protest by Marathon residents outside the station, Haley-Benjamin, CEO of fast-growing social and environmental movement Save The Bays (STB), said authorities were wrong to tell residents they have nothing to fear from the toxic chemicals to which they were exposed for upwards of two years, as medical tests are far from complete – and likely to be less than conclusive when they are.“The release of these premature results is unfortunate,” she said. “The government clearly jumped the gun. In reality, there is no satisfactory way in the short term to verify conclusively whether a person has been exposed to low levels of certain chemicals, for example benzene.”Haley-Benjamin noted that according to Dr. van de Weerdt, toxicologist and consultant with the Pan-American Health Organization (PAHO), while the preliminary results may be encouraging, it remains important to establish a complete picture of the situation – both in terms of completing the health risk assessments and being in a position to reassure concerned citizens.“The government should not be in the business of communicating simplified versions of this very serious situation to the public,” she said.“With regard to the 223 persons tested, more information is required to understand the extent of the evaluations and if those tested are representative of both the original and possibly any newly impacted areas. To date, we know that 17,000 gallons of fuel have yet to be recovered from the ground. Over time, the impacted area will grow as the benzene spreads with the natural flow of groundwater.“Residents of this area are very concerned for their safety – and rightfully so considering the known link between aggressive cancer and benzene exposure; and in light of the more than 20 recent cancer-related deaths in the area,” said Haley-Benjamin. “Exposure to low levels of benzene can result in chronic health effects and take a longer period of time to manifest. This underscores the need for long-term medical surveillance by a medical practitioner to detect abnormalities during early onset.”Haley-Benjamin called for a full report of the investigation by the Department of Environmental Health (DEHS) and PAHO to be compiled and released to the public, and said officials should refrain from making any sweeping statements until such time.She went on to stress STB’s full support for Justice for Marathon, the grassroots community group that organized last week’s protest, citing the lack of proper response to the leak by both government and Rubis, and the ongoing failure to fully address the concerns of residents. Haley-Benjamin said STB’s call for stronger environmental legislation is also an effort to protect human health by either through prevention of hazardous pollution, or mitigation of the effects if such situations do arise. To that end, she called for the implementation of an effective response and public warning system for hydrocarbon leaks, and a comprehensive monitoring program for all fuel stations, in line with the recommendations in the report by consultants Black & Veatch, who were contracted by the government to evaluate the response to the Marathon spill more than a year ago. Save The Bays CEO Vanessa Haley-Benjamin participates in last week’s protest, pointing out 20 recent cancer-related deaths in the area of the fuel leak. In January 2013, it came to the attention of Rubis and the government that the Robinson Road station had leaked around 24,000 gallons of gasoline into the ground.The resultant presence of strong hydrocarbon vapors and discovery of large pools of underground gasoline forced the station’s immediate neighbor, Cable Bahamas to evacuate its Customer Service Building (CSB) amid fears of health and safety issues for customers and staff. Eventually, more than 40 staff members had to be treated for exposure.It has been confirmed that the leak led to the contamination of a wide area of groundwater, including the water supply to several homes and residents have reported a range of health problems.For two years, Rubis and government officials were aware of the leak and the associated dangers, but failed to make any public announcements, sparking widespread outrage.Since then, two further possible leaks at Rubis stations in New Providence have come to light. In the wake of the fallout from the Marathon case, both Rubis and the government appeared to take swift action. However yet again, they only broke their silence in response to concerns raised by members of the public.last_img read more

Fayetteville Leaders Tout Strong Community Bonds at Army Commission Hearing

first_img Dan Cohen AUTHOR The National Commission on the Future of the Army’s public hearing in Fayetteville, N.C., Wednesday, was not intended to scrutinize Fort Bragg’s missions or its military value, but local officials who testified focused on the high degree of support the surrounding communities provide the post.“We here in Fayetteville get the Army,” Fayetteville City Manager Ted Vorhees told the commissioners.The commission’s task is to assess “the right mix between the active army, the National Guard and the Army Reserve to meet the nation’s requirements,” said retired Army Gen. Carter Ham, chairman of the eight-member panel.Cumberland County Commissioner Jimmy Keefe noted the close connections between Fort Bragg and its civilian neighbors, reported the Fayetteville Observer. About 70 percent of the installation’s troops live off post, for example. Keefe also pointed out that the county has one of the state’s few veterans courts.“Those are the kind of unique initiatives we take as a county,” Keefe said. “Our county leadership hopes to build on the leadership with Fort Bragg in their decision-making,” he added.Only one speaker addressed the Army’s plan to shift AH-64 Apache attack helicopters from the National Guard to the regular Army, one of the primary issues the commission will be taking up.Removing the Apaches from the National Guard would be a “huge risk,” Chief Warrant Officer 5 Rick Comer told the panel. When there was a heavy demand to train Apache pilots over the last 13 years, Fort Rucker, Ala., turned to the National Guard to supply instructor pilots.  “The Guard at any given time had eight to 12 instructor pilots at Fort Rucker supporting flight school. We take the Apaches out of the Guard, what do we do next time? We won’t have that capability,” said Comer, who served with the North Carolina National Guard for 30 years.last_img read more

Netflixs The OA Part II trailer has an alternative universe twist

Netflix When we first meet the wounded heroine Prairie (Brit Marling) in season one of Netflix’s sci-fi series The OA, we see what happens when a mad scientist named Hap (Jason Isaacs) kidnaps people and use them for dangerous experiments to test the boundaries of life and death.By the end of the first season, we’re left wondering if Prairie (who renames herself OA — which stands for Original Angel) and her fellow captors ever really figured out how to transport themselves to other dimensions.Or if it was all a fictional adventure she made up to cope with being tortured for seven years. 50 Photos Tags Share your voice “We think of Part II as very much a noir,” The OA co-creator Zal Batmanglij told Entertainment Weekly on Wednesday. “We wanted to come in through the character of a cynical detective. That’s why we thought, ‘What better place than San Francisco and the tech world to set a noir today?'”The returning cast includes Jason Isaacs, Emory Cohen and the late actor Scott Wilson (The Walking Dead), who played Prairie’s adoptive father in season 1. Wilson filmed his role for The OA Part II before dying from leukemia last October.The OA Part II premieres on Netflix on March 22. Now with The OA Part II, we see Prairie/OA again but as an alternate-universe version of herself as a wealthy Russian heiress who lives in San Francisco. This version of her was never kidnapped or experimented on.In the new trailer for The OA Part II posted on Wednesday, we see OA team up with PI Karim Washington (Kingsley Ben-Adir), who is looking for a missing teen named Michelle Vu. OA and Washington find themselves drawn to a house in San Francisco’s wealthy Nob Hill neighborhood that’s connected to the disappearance of several other teenagers.  0 More Netflix showslast_img read more
