What were the reasons for Proven Strategies for Engagement, Effective Change and Enduring Risk Reduction?

Title: Proven Strategies for Engagement, Effective Change and Enduring Risk Reduction with Offenders
Authors: Asad Ul Lah and Jacqui Saradjian
Abstract: Research indicates that at least 70% of offenders reach criteria for personality disorder other than antisocial and, due to the closure of mental health hospitals world -wide; there are an increasing number of offenders with mental illness located in prisons. To fully assess and reduce the risk an offender poses and to try to remediate that risk, the underlying drives to offend must be understood and addressed. To do this an offender must be genuinely engaged. It is suggested that this is in part due to having poor attachment histories and no internal model of a healthy attachment. This paper is written by a consultant clinical and forensic psychologist with a long standing proven record of establishing and running services for and working therapeutically with men with mental health issues with outstanding results in risk reduction alongside and by an expert by experience who has in-depth personal insights into the both the processes needed for effective engagement and change.

Find out the Sources of Occupational Stress and Coping Strategies among Teachers
Title: Sources of Occupational Stress and Coping Strategies among Teachers in Borstal Institutions in Keny
Authors: Kagwe Margaret, Ngigi Simon and Mutisya Sabina
Abstract: Teaching has emerged as one of the most stressful professions in the last two decades. The need for knowledge for personal growth and national development puts pressure on the teachers to facilitate the achievement of these goals. Teachers in Borstal institutions are expected to teach and rehabilitate young convicts for re-integration into the society. The desire to find out sources of stress and coping strategies among teachers in Borstal institutions has necessitated an empirical study. The current study focuses on sources of occupational stress and coping strategies among teachers in Borstal institutions in Kenya. Phenomenology study design was used and purposive sampling in particular maximum variation was used to select the study participants. Results indicated that working conditions, living conditions and lack of resources were the main sources of stressors, while physical exercises, religious intervention, use of alcohol were among the coping strategies used. Lack of professional counseling services also emerged as a situation that lead to high stress levels.

Towards an HIV Cure - a Myth or a Reality?

Recent progress in HIV research has directed global scientific community to search for a ‘cure’ for HIV infection. The first evidence emerged from Timothy Brown, a Berlin patient. This HIV-infected patient received hematopoietic stem cells from an HLA-matched donor whose genome naturally lacked CCR5, the major receptor of HIV. Mr Brown appears to be cured of HIV as well as leukaemia as no infectious virus could be recovered from his blood and other tissues for over 6 years after the stem cell transplantation. The case has given direction to scientists to administer genetically modified stem cells lacking CCR5 receptors to HIV-infected person to provide a defence against HIV. However, this approach may be difficult to apply to all HIV-infected persons globally.
