Rick Holland American Corrections Phase 4 IP Professor Dawn Howell 12/15/14 “Objective jail classification (OJC) is a process of assessing every jail inmate's custody and program needs and is considered one of the most important management tools available to jail administrators and criminal justice system planners. An effective system of inmate classification will reduce escapes and escape attempts, suicides and suicide attempts, and inmate assaults.” (NICIN, 2006) Upon being convicted of a crime worthy of a prison sentence the convicted criminal are referred to a reception area for classification. This classification determines what facility and what level of confinement he or she will receive. In the State of California,” upon arrival to a prison Reception Center, the inmate must go through the reception and classification process. This could take up to 120 days.
[i] The concept of a post incarceration syndrome (PICS) has emerged from clinical consultation work with criminal justice system rehabilitation programs working with currently incarcerated prisoners and with addiction treatment programs and community mental health centers working with recently released prisoners. This article will provide an operational definition of the Post Incarceration Syndrome (PICS), describe the common symptoms, recommend approaches to diagnosis and treatment, explore the implications of this serious new syndrome for community safety, and discuss the need for political action to reduce the number of prisoners and assure more humane treatment within our prisons, jails, and correctional institutions as a means of prevention. It is my hope that this initial formulation of a PICS Syndrome will encourage researchers to develop objective testing tools and formal studies to add to our understanding of the problems encountered by released inmates that influence recovery and relapse.

If people are having a hard time with life, they should talk to someone about it. Something that you and I could do to help people going through a hard time is to open up more Suicide Anonymous Hotlines. Also if you feel that a friend or family member is being lead down that path, you should talk to them about it, and get them to call into an anonymous hotline and get help. Suicide is preventable, as long as you lead them in the direction of help. Greatly Appreiciated Taylor

The College of New Jersey | Assignment 3 | | With the variety of journal articles to choose from, “Psychiatric Disorders and Repeat incarcerations: The Revolving Prison Door” caught my interest. As an undergraduate Criminology student it was very interesting to read an article referring to how psychology (mental disorders) and the criminal justice system are compatible. The data was correlational because the journal attempts to determine how related psychiatric disorders and recidivism in correctional populations are. In the introduction the researchers defined their problem or question. The epidemic of psychiatric disorders in the U.S prison system is a national problem.
At admissions, a suicide risk assessment is completed on each patient. Based on the score patients are assigned a specific observation status. High risk suicide patients go on CO status or constant observation, in which a staff member must be within arm’s length of patient at all, times to ensure safety. Each day the MD evaluates the status of the patient based on the nurse suicide risk reassessment and determines if the observation status needs to be reduced. The reevaluation of patient suicide risk anticipates patient safety and improves the quality of care delivered.
The placement setting where David resides is a forensic low secure hospital houses men who are detained under the Mental Health Act (1983) http://www.dh.gov.uk/. In defining reflection Johns (2009) suggests that ‘reflection is learning through our everyday experiences towards realising ones vision of desirable practice as a lived reality. It is a critical and reflexive process of self-enquiry and transformation of being and becoming the practitioner you desire to be. Johns (2009). According to Bulman and Schutz (2008) the art of reflection can help students and nurses learn from experiences and improve their own practice.
1.4 Explain why and when inquiries and serious case reviews are required and how the sharing of findings informed practice. Serious Case Reviews When a child dies (including death by suicide), and abuse or Neglect are known or suspected to be a factor in the death, local organisations should consider immediately whether there are other children at risk of harm who require safeguarding (e.g. siblings, other children in an institution where abuse is alleged). Thereafter, organisations should consider whether there are any lessons to be learnt about the ways in which they work together to safeguard and promote the welfare of children. Consequently, when a child dies in such circumstances, the Local Safeguarding Children Board (LSCB) should always conduct a Serious Case Review into the involvement with the child and family of organisations and professionals.
