The ongoing efforts by state agencies to curb antisocial behavior in schools, especially through the behavior modification therapy and violence prevention programme, financed by the Jamaica Social Investment Fund (JSIF), has helped a significant number of students in St. James, to rededicate themselves to learning and reduce violent behaviours. The initiative is funded by the Japan Social Development Fund (JSDF), and seeks to modify disruptive behavior of young people in inner-city communities, while also helping parents to develop skills that can help the growth of children, and strengthening the capacity of guidance counsellors and deans of discipline. “I used to be angry with myself all the time; at school if students say anything to me I was ready to fight. My guidance counsellor told me about this camp, I never wanted to come…when I came I never socialized, I sat in a corner by myself, after I started to grow and talking with the others, and socializing,” St. James High School, Sade McIntosh revealed, while speaking at a recent closing out ceremony held at the Family and Parenting Centre, in the parish where the programme is administered. “When I went back to school, I was not angry anymore. I was not ready to fight anybody anymore. I was just calm and gentle,” she added. The programme ran for some 12 months and catered for 360 students. It saw 216 youth from the cohort partially taken from the formal school system for five hours per week and given behavior modification therapy for two weeks. The participants were those who may have been suspended from schools, and those who were exhibiting behaviors indicating that suspension from school would be the next course of disciplinary action. The sessions included life skills development and pro-social behavior development. The project also incorporated training of 300 parents and caregivers in non-violent alternative disciplinary skills, and provided them with handbooks for future and long-term use. Mother of four, Miss Trivonnie Ajoe, said the programme taught her how to talk with her children, and “how to share and keep a relationship with them-we are encouraging people to come to this meeting (the Centre), don’t feel that life is done as you see it; there is much more ahead of you,” she said. Head of the Centre, Dr. Beverley Scott, reported that most of the participants had displayed variant normal behaviors, but after the modification intervention, screening revealed that most of them could return to the regular school system on a permanent basis, while three students were referred to other agencies for further intervention. “St. James High School was plagued by fights and violence. A number of my students that were giving problems I referred them there (the Centre), some of them I deliberately took them out of school for up to two weeks, had them attend the Centre before they came back to school. The Centre worked wonders for them,” stated Guidance Counsellor at St. James High, Radcliffe Virgo. For his part, Dean of Discipline at the Green Pond High School Donald Webley, said the intervention initiative allowed him to send students to the Centre, and also to have Dr. Scott conduct parent conferences and workshops at the school. Project Manager at JSIF for the JSDF, Ayanna Demetrius, said the programme administered for parents who are challenged and their offspring, was timely and “very much in line with the Ministry of Education’s thrust to incorporate parents with students and teachers as a means to promote good parenting and force parents to take equal responsibility for their children’s education. “The pull-out component was the other element which was specially designed for youth in crisis, who had been temporally removed from formal school system. These students, some had been expelled from the formal school system, some were at home…had been suspended for an extended period and required the completion of therapy before being admitted back into the school system,” Mrs. Demetrius explained. The projected cost some $ 25million, and had participation of 24 guidance counsellors from the 12 participating primary and high schools in the parish. Mrs. Demetrius said after the successful “meeting of the programme goals,” every effort was made to reintegrate participants into the formal school system. “For some students who had been expelled, after the completion of the therapy, they are returned to school, referred to other schools, the Family Court, or in some cases, the hospital for mental health problems,” she said. Parents and guardians were trained to use non-violent discipline, and guidance counselors and deans of discipline were trained to detect and refer children for therapy in a timely manner. The project also included the provision of handbooks to both students and parents.

Alan ShatterDONEGAL DAILY COMMENT: We write hundreds of stories every week at Donegal Daily. We rarely write an editorial comment.But today it’s time to ask a simple question: How long is our Justice Minister going to allow thugs to terrorise the people of County Donegal?Alan Shatter controls the purse strings, our courts and An Garda Siochana. And we DON’T HAVE ENOUGH GARDAÍ to deal with the sickening crimes which has left people terrified in their homes right across this county in the past few weeks.Like the weather affected by a so-called ‘Storm Factory’ in the Atlantic, Donegal is being bombard by a ‘Crime Factory’ – wave after wave of criminal attack on some of the most vulnerable people in our society.Elderly widows have been shaken out of their beds by thugs smashing their doors down with sledgehammers.Old men in the twilight of their lives have been bound, gagged and had knives put to their throats by lowlife criminals. Some Gardaí have said they’re in control; it’s just the reporting of crime by journalists which makes it look bad. What utter rubbish. People don’t want to hear statistics when they’re dealing with an elderly relative left traumatised or worse – like poor Suzy Arthur who never recovered and eventually died.But most Gardaí know what the real story is – there simply isn’t enough of them. They struggle from shift to shift (on barmy shift patterns) to get to grips with the criminals.They know for a fact that their colleagues up in Dublin have all the resources they want; whilst our county struggles to cope.Gardaí do their best. Some even work unpaid extra hours for the benefit of this community and we should be grateful for that.But when they do catch criminals – and they do catch them – we often see them bailed, given Community Service Orders and fined – fines which they don’t even pay. And what is the root cause of all of this; Alan Shatter, Minister for Justice.It is he who isn’t giving Donegal the policing resources it needs.And it is he who is telling judges to try to avoid filling up our prisons.No amount of waffle will wash anymore after another senseless attack this weekend on a couple in Lifford. No amount of rubbish about ‘specialist targeting’ of criminals counts.We’ve had enough. Health Minister James Reilly gives Letterkenny General Hospital HALF the money per patient that Dublin hospitals get.Alan Shatter is giving us half the number of Gardaí we need to fight this scourge of crime.It’s time for our SIX TDs – all of them – to stand up for Donegal.And demand that Alan Shatter either gives our Gardaí the resources they need or get the hell out of Government.DONEGAL DAILY COMMENT: HOW LONG IS ALAN SHATTER GOING TO ALLOW THIS THUGGERY TO CONTINUE? was last modified: February 23rd, 2014 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:Alan Shattercrimehasn’t got a clueJUSTICE MINISTER
