This webinar recording is a conversation about the challenges and successes of raising awareness about family violence through action.
The number of young people involved in the juvenile justice system in Australia is on the rise. Although many intervention programs have been designed, implemented and reviewed, the problem continues.
The role of education in decreasing recidivism has been shown to be of great importance but, as with other initiatives, it does not seem to be a complete solution.
Alternative education approaches, however, have not received extensive research attention, and the role of Curriculum and Reengagement in Education (CARE) schools in reducing recidivism has been explored even less.
CARE schools provide a holistic approach to schooling, attempting to alleviate the basic problems our young people face.
Through the lens of school leadership and youth support and development workers, this presentation will highlight the work of a Western Australian CARE school, its alternative education approach and the initiatives that are helping keep the young people in its care from involvement with the justice system.
Participants will learn about:
Youth workers, social workers, community organisation workers, educators in the justice system, child and family workers and counsellors at any level of experience.
Dr Lukas Carey completed his Doctorate in Education and has worked in the field for most of his career as a coach, teacher, trainer, and educator.
While filling a role in Australian local government he was charged with and convicted of receiving secret commissions and served time in prison.
During and since Lukas’ incarceration, he developed a strong interest in the role that previously incarcerated people have in the development of policy and procedure in the justice system concerned with education, recidivism, and post-release employment.
As a current CARE school principal working with young people removed from mainstream schooling, his experiences are firsthand and extensive. Lukas is also a strong advocate for the importance of Lived Experience in all forms of education and the importance of including the voices and experiences of all.
