The second National Symposium on Corrections Worker Health was held on August 17, 2017 in Saint Louis, Missouri. Seventy five academic researchers, practitioners, and correctional organization leaders came together to discuss the how to advance health, safety and well-being for correctional workers. This event builds on the 2014 first National Symposium, held in Portland, Oregon.
The symposium program included podium and panel presentations by correctional department administrators from Connecticut, Oregon, Idaho, and California, and researchers from Northeastern University, Saint Louis University, University of Massachusetts Lowell, University of Connecticut, Desert Waters Correctional Outreach, and Threshold GlobalWorks.
Special thanks goes to Saint Louis University for hosting the event and coordinating logistics, the John Jay College of Criminal Justice-Prisoner Re-entry Institute, and the many collaborating partners/organizers who make up the National Corrections Collaborative.
Videos of selected presentation will be available soon – please check back in late September 2017.
