The below came to me through an email and I have not gone into as of yet but found it by accident as it went into my junk mail. It looks good.

Webinar: Learning from People Who Succeed Upon Release: What Strategies, Approaches, and Tools Can Make a Difference

Hosted by the National Reentry Resource Center

We often hear about the daunting challenges people who are newly released from prison face, and about the high rate of failure among this population. Yet there are notable successes, and each individual with a “success story” can assist researchers and practitioners in identifying themes and specific, individualized strategies that may increase the numbers of reentry successes and thereby enhance community safety.

This webinar will highlight case studies of individuals who successfully returned to their communities following periods of incarceration and distill lessons about what works for members of the reentry population under a variety of circumstances. Details from the experiences of successful and unsuccessful releases will be compared and contrasted, and suggestions will be offered about how the “lessons learned” from these experiences could be incorporated at both the macro-level (system and organization) and the micro-level (individual reentry planning) to increase the likelihood that more released individuals will become productive and law-abiding citizens. The final 30 minutes of the webinar will be reserved for attendees to ask the presenter questions about the topics covered during the event.

Date: Tuesday, August 14, 2012

Time: 2:00-3:30 p.m. ET
