Beth Battinelli Ph.D. reports on her exciting prisoner experiences with prison inmates who have no idea of their brain reality, especially regarding the underlying executive function challenges that led them to poor judgment, impulsivity and breaking the rules. In this CBJ/212 Episode, she talks about a program she developed: The ADHD Project.
She also wants to either start or join inevitable conversations about paradoxical reactions to pharmaceuticals for those incarcerated. The current news about the opioid crisis directly connects to both of these topics. Forewarned and educated is likely to reduce recidivism in this vulnerable, underserved population.
Well done, Beth - certainly a worthy project for undeniable difficulties.
