NICA-1 -- A HOLISTIC APPROACH TO ORGANIZATION PERFORMANCE: SYNCHRONOUS SYSTEMS THINKING

During this four hour workshop, participants will explore a systems thinking approach to organizational behavior and performance. Most correctional organizations are comprised of many parts organized around a central mission. The ultimate performance of these organizations relies on the administrative ability to lead and manage a synchronous functioning of these parts. Participants will learn how to view the organization as a whole, entertaining a variety of influences, both inside and outside the organization. An understanding of these influences will assist in the development of strategic actions to promote a holistic, performance-based influence on the organization. This workshop is very experiential and interactive.

Coordinator: Michael J. Dooley, M.Ed., Correctional Program Specialist, National Institute of Corrections Academy, Federal Bureau of Prisons, U.S. Department of Justice, Longmont, Colorado

MONDAY, AUGUST 11, 2003 * 2:00 P.M.-3:30 P.M.

This session will set the stage for the project's transition to the "Create Phase" which will begin with four solution-oriented focus group sessions to be held throughout the convention. Join your colleagues in constructing a response to what represents one of the most critical issues ever facing the corrections field.

Coordinator: Ronald D. Edwards, Director Governor's Office of Veteran's Affairs, Columbus, Ohio

MAJOR SESSION B -- STALKING: THE CONTINUUM FROM SEXUAL DISORDER TO SEXUAL ASSAULT*

As early intervention can prevent sexual assault, corrections officials who are familiar with the symptoms of sexually disordered persons are better prepared to manage this problem. The presenter will describe how sexually disordered persons exhibit sexual paraphilias, stalking patterns and rape profiles. The presenter will also explain how to watch for predictive behavior, identify victim target groups, and identify cases in which early intervention may lead to sexual assault prevention.

Coordinator: Mark H. Saunders, Warden, Correctional Reception Center, Department of Rehabilitation and Correction, Orient, Ohio

MAJOR SESSION C -- WHY SOME CORRECTIONAL PROGRAMS REDUCE RECIDIVISM AND OTHERS DON'T

This session will focus on what works in reducing recidivism among offenders. Participants will learn about the principles of effective intervention, how they were derived, and how they are applied.
