Navigating Women’s Reentry in the Time of Change: A gender-responsive training
November 17, 2017 @ 6:30 am - 7:30 am EST
For almost 25 years, Ashley McSwain has worked with women in the criminal justice system. As the Executive Director of Community Family Life Services, Ashley McSwain continues to work to reduce the barriers to reentry for DC women and provide gender responsive supports as they set out to rebuild their lives after incarceration.
This training is for practitioners in DC who are serving formerly incarcerated women.
Did you know…
• Millennial women are becoming incarcerated at higher rates than any women in American history?
• DC women are serving time in Waseca, MN, Aliceville, AL, Carswell, TX, Dublin, CA and various out-of-town facilities that prevent access to visitation for children with incarcerated parents?
• Most of the DC women in prison were the primary caregivers of their children prior to incarceration?
• Many of the DC women in prison are survivors of trauma, and suffer with a dual diagnosis, both mental health and substance abuse concerns?
This training will give practitioners an opportunity to think about ways to better support their clients in the current political and social climate. We will discuss ways to create safe spaces, build trust and think about what your clients may be experiencing during this time of social unrest. We will host a fishbowl discussion allowing participants to engage in the discussion.
The training will offer 2.5 CEU’s.
When: Friday, November 17, 2017 at 11:30 am
Where: Georgetown University School of Continuing Studies 640 Massachusetts Ave. NW
