PGI (Preventing Generations of Incarceration) Conference
FailSafe-ERA is partnering with Office on Youth and Germanna Community College for its 2019 Spring Forum: “Preventing Generations of Incarceration”.
Over 3,000,000 children are impacted by increased criminal activities and generational incarceration. Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACES) have increased trauma and mental health issues for children and their families.
The forum focused on the over three million children impacted by increased criminal activities and generational incarceration that continues to rise. Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACES), which include a family member being incarcerated, have increased trauma and mental health issues for children and their families. The reciprocal effect of traumatic events has seen an increase in the generational school to prison pipeline. The forum highlighted the impact of incarceration on our community and families revealing the need for an increased focus on educating professionals. Interactive discussions on what is currently known about the impact of incarceration on families and tools and resources for supporting these children and their families.
