The New England ATTC in partnership with the Connecticut Department of Mental Health and Addictions Services is providing targeted RA in "From Behind the Wall & Beyond: Working with Men in the Criminal Justice System" on 10/12/22 from 9:00-3:30 (EST) with subject matter expert Michele Paliotta. Males are born into a society that begins treating them differently than females from birth. This can include a permissible harsh environment and rules that severely curtail emotional expression. This is especially true for men involved in the criminal justice system. Most traditional treatment models were aimed at “breaking men down”, and thus can fail and often re-traumatize men instead of treating them. Male socialization and trauma will be discussed in this workshop for working with men involved in the criminal justice system who seek behavioral health treatment.
