NABSW 2013 Holiday Greetings

Posted By Tiaisha Dandy, Saturday, December 21, 2013



 In the spirit of the season, I wish you peace, love and plenty. 

The next five weeks is always a special time of renewal and festivities. We embrace family and friends; we remember our ancestors and we nourish ourselves physically, emotionally and spiritually. It is a time to reflect and to hope for better and more fruitful times. It is a time of prayer to our Creator and meditation, so in our silence, we may hear and understand the answer which the Creator has given.

This is a powerful time, a Holy time and I sincerely wish you all the best during this time and hope that each day produces happiness and health for my family and equally important, my extended family of NABSW. I also wish, that the world would come to embrace and respect humanity in all its forms. Toward those ends, I would want all of us to continue our work of making this world a better place to live, work, love and play.

On a personal note, I thank the Creator, daily, for giving me the opportunity to be a part of each of you. Our lives are richer because of what we do with and for our people in the true spirit of Harambee. 

Please enjoy the holiday season, and know that you make a difference in this world. In gratitude, thanks for all that you do.

With warmest regards,

Joe Benton

The Desired Outcome: Develop Best Practices for Social Workers Using Family Group Conferencing, especially if you have worked with families who have experienced a parental incarceration

The exploration of social worker’s experiences will aid in determining whether or not social work practices with Family Group Conference post parental incarceration is effective. The findings will influence the development of best practices for this specific population, families experiencing a parental incarceration. These outcomes will influence social change via policy, legislation, and services provided.

I need you to help me make a difference. Take a giant step and be heard by participating in this research study.
