Felesia Otis Training 

Please join us for the upcoming Al Forthan Scholarship Training featuring Felesia Otis BS, CADC II discussing Effective Strategies for Treating Individuals with Criminal Behavior and Addiction. The training will take place on on Wednesday, February 14th.

The purpose of this training is to help gain an understanding of the research that looks at the things that put people at risk of being involved in criminal activity. You will learn how risk and protective factors can assist helpers in targeting appropriate interventions for change. You will obtain the latest information about best practices currently being used with the criminal justice populations.
