Workshop Trainings

The Wisconsin Correctional Association is happy to announce we will be offering a 4-hour virtual workshop.  The training is July 9th, and will be conducted on a virtual platform from 12:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.

How Suicide and Aging is Affecting Corrections
Our speaker is Phillip Galli.  He is an Assistant Professor at the University of Wisconsin- River Falls.  He will be sharing the history of suicide in the prison setting with those in our care and how research could inform future correctional policy by understanding how culture plays a role. Throughout this workshop, we will discuss the phenomena of prisoner suicide and the role culture (traditions, norms, and values) may play in these processes.  Additionally, some attention will be given to how correctional staff fit into these narratives. Lastly, he will also share insight about how justice-involved individuals are aging in the correctional institutions and what we as correctional professionals can do to support this transition into the community. 

COST: FREE to WCA members                                $40.00 Non-Members
