Juvenile detainees learn about domestic violence

Back to TopE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

The Marion Superior Court’s Juvenile Detention Center is hosting a series of domestic violence workshops today for children detained in the facility. This is the first time the center has hosted this conference.

The conference began at 10 a.m. and goes until 4 p.m. Representatives from domestic violence and sexual assault prevention organizations, law enforcement, the Marion County Prosecutor’s Office, and faith-based organizations will lead discussion on various topics, including healthy relationships, bullying, and stalking.

Faith-based nonprofit Not 2 Believers Like Us, which focuses on education, prevention, and breaking the cycle of domestic and family violence, is sponsoring the program. DeShane Reed, superintendent of the detention center, said that violence is a part of many of the detainees’ lives and since October is Domestic Violence Awareness month, this workshop is the perfect opportunity to provide lessons on the topic.

  1. Based on several recent Indy Star articles, I would agree that being a case worker would be really hard. You would see the worst of humanity on a daily basis; and when things go wrong guess who gets blamed??!! Not biological parent!! Best of luck to those who entered that line of work.

  2. I was looking through some of your blog posts on this internet site and I conceive this web site is rattling informative ! Keep on posting . dfkcfdkdgbekdffe

  3. Don't believe me, listen to Pacino: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z6bC9w9cH-M

  4. Law school is social control the goal to produce a social product. As such it began after the Revolution and has nearly ruined us to this day: "“Scarcely any political question arises in the United States which is not resolved, sooner or later, into a judicial question. Hence all parties are obliged to borrow, in their daily controversies, the ideas, and even the language, peculiar to judicial proceedings. As most public men [i.e., politicians] are, or have been, legal practitioners, they introduce the customs and technicalities of their profession into the management of public affairs. The jury extends this habitude to all classes. The language of the law thus becomes, in some measure, a vulgar tongue; the spirit of the law, which is produced in the schools and courts of justice, gradually penetrates beyond their walls into the bosom of society, where it descends to the lowest classes, so that at last the whole people contract the habits and the tastes of the judicial magistrate.” ? Alexis de Tocqueville, Democracy in America

  5. Attorney? Really? Or is it former attorney? Status with the Ind St Ct? Status with federal court, with SCOTUS? This is a legal newspaper, or should I look elsewhere?
