RI International’s justice-involved peer support training is designed to support individuals coming out of incarceration. This webinar will take a look at the psychological effects of those incarcerated and some of the learned behavior that may be present. We will focus on integration, reintegration, and reentry with the purpose of reducing the recidivism rate.
