The CPCS Annual Training Conference will be held on Tuesday, May 14, 2019, 8:00-5:00 at the DCU Center, 50 Foster Street, Worcester. Advance Registration is Required.
The keynote address will include remarks by two exceptional speakers:
Dr. Yusef Salaam, a transformational speaker, has traveled the United States facilitating conversations about race and class, the failings of our justice system, legal protections for vulnerable juveniles, and fundamental human rights. His experience of being wrongfully convicted at age 15 as one of the “Central Park Five” for the rape of the “Central Park Jogger”, holds lessons for us all.
Vincent Schiraldi co-founded the Justice Lab at Columbia University, which is devoted to reducing society’s reliance the justice system as a solution to social problems through research, education, and collaboration among scholars, practitioners, policy makers, advocates and formerly incarcerated people. His projects include eliminating youth prisons, reducing the footprint and negative impact of community corrections, and creating a developmentally appropriate response to offending by young adults.
The keynote will be followed by workshop sessions on a variety of topics of interest to criminal, juvenile, child welfare and mental health practitioners. At midday, we will gather to hear remarks from Chief Counsel Anthony Benedetti. A boxed lunch will be served.
