MASS INCARCERATION

THE UNITED STATES IS THE WORLD’S LEADING JAILER
Our country has 5% of the world’s population, but 25% of its prisoners.

OUR RATE OF INCARCERATION IS HISTORIC
2.2 million Americans are incarcerated – an increase of 500% over the last 40 years.

WE IMPRISON DISPROPORTIONATELY
1 out of every 3 African-American males born today and 1 out of every 6 Latino males are likely to be incarcerated during their lifetimes.  Most prisoners are poor, undereducated, and underemployed.

THE COSTS ARE STAGGERING
The correctional system in America is an $80 billion enterprise.  The cost to our communities and individual lives is incalculable.

MASS INCARCERATION HAS NOT MADE US SAFER
Mass incarceration is the result of changes in policy, not an increase in crime.  In recent years, a number of states have successfully reduced incarceration while maintaining reductions in crime.

AND IN RHODE ISLANDWE ALSO HAVE MASS PROBATION
Over 24,000 of our citizens are on probation–--the fourth highest probation rate in the country – making it harder for them to educate themselves, obtain jobs, and acquire the full benefits of citizenship.  We also have one of the highest cost-per-offender rates in the United States.

MOVING TOWARD SOLUTIONS
The symposium will be a forum for collective conversation among those who care deeply about our criminal justice system. We will work together to examine the problems of mass incarceration and mass probation and move forward toward solutions.

Special thanks to:
Dean Michael J. Yelnosky, Roger Williams University School of Law

Energy Psychology, better known as Energy Tapping is taking the world of psychological counseling and the treatment of many physical problems to a new and exciting level. This procedure has been demonstrated on numerous TV shows such as: Dr. Oz, The View, LEEZA, Phil Donahue, Whoopi Goldberg Special, and CNN to name a few. The book “The Tapping Solutions” sold 600,000 its first three months and was a New York Times best seller. Because it is so easy to learn and use, it is often referred to as the peoples’ therapy. The technique combines Chinese Medicine principles developed over 5,000 years ago and still used today in China along with a group of psychological professionals from the U.S. One would think a set of techniques that are simple, effective where others have failed, and provides permanent cures, would be embraced by our health care system. Currently, fifty-two countries are using Energy Psychology and only recently have the vast majority of mental health and medical professionals begun to study, write and do research that can stand up to intense scrutiny proving the value of Energy Psychology.

            Why such resistance in the United States to Energy Psychology? The answer simply put is money. This is a non-medicine approach and pharmaceutical companies are the most powerful group of lobbyists. They have invested a great deal of influence and money to discourage research and the use of these techniques in the current psychological and medical communities. The AMA has also been highly resistant, refusing to even take Energy Psychology seriously, even though therapists and their clients report amazing results.

            This seminar will be presented by Dr. Ronald N. Mancini, Clinical Director of Dr. Ronald N. Mancini and Associates Inc., who serve as the Student Assistance Program for the School of Law.

 The seminar will focus on stress, anxiety, depression, eliminating urges and cravings from alcohol to food, as well as how to conquer procrastination, increase motivation and energy, and obtaining peak performance when studying, writing papers, taking exams, and enjoying socializing with others.

            Come with an open mind and learn some tools that have the ability to improve your life now and in the future. If you can attend only part of the seminar, please do, as the handouts will be very helpful.
