Course Name:

INTERPERSONAL COMMUNICATIONS IN THE CORRECTIONAL SETTING - COURSE 1

SPONSORED BY THE IDAHO SHERIFF'S ASSOCIATION

Description:

The skills presented have been specifically tailored to aid correctional workers in being more effective in carrying out their major functions: first and foremost, to keep the institution secure; and then to help inmates make the constructive choices necessary to live within the rules of the institution and of society.   Training in interpersonal management skills will make a difference in correctional institutions for staff and inmates. The techniques presented in this program go beyond the traditional interpersonal skills that should have been taught in the past but, in fact never were. Now through training, employees (and especially new employees) can acquire these new skills that they need to do the job. In the past, staff have been asked to put themselves on the line without all the knowledge and skills they really needed. They have had to cope with ever-increasing legal, physical and emotional demands. Now, by equipping staff with these skills, we will keep more of the control where it belongs: with the line employee.
