In-Home worker with adolescents referred by Juvenile Court Services Unit

I am working as anĀ Intensive In-Home worker with adolescents referred by the local juvenile court services unit. I do this work through the local mental health organization (Community Services Board) in Harrisonburg, Va. Most of the kids are working at anger management, impulse control and general coping and relationship skills in the home and community.

I use a lot of conflict transformation skills, and I am nudging the court services unit to look at some restorative justice approaches to complement their array of services.
