Anyone who has been inside of a jail or prison can imagine the toll it takes on the millions of people in the U.S. who live and work there. Amidst calls for reform nationally in the criminal justice system, the Connecticut Department of Correction, Yale Justice Collaboratory, and LaGratta Consulting partnered on a project to test whether targeted training and engagement with corrections officers could reduce stress and improve well-being and cooperation for staff and individuals in custody alike. This session will explore the strategies and research findings of this first-of-its-kind effort and the evidence-informed framework supporting the model. Hear firsthand from the deputy warden who helped guide and roll out the project over several months and what it suggests for needed reforms going forward in prisons and related contexts.
