CJC Completes 3 Restorative Justice Classes at DEC

On June 28, The Community Justice Center (CJC) completed three (3) 90 Minute “Emotional Hygiene/Anger” Sessions with twenty-seven incarcerated men at the Diagnostic and Evaluation Center.  Ninety six percent of the class who participated rated the class “excellent" with eighty-six percent showing some level of insight into understanding the three sources of ANGER and their Emotional Hygiene (how to processing feelings).  Two participants of the class said, "It helped to identity the feelings that triggered ANGER the reason most of us get into trouble," and "It helped me understand my problems better.”
