PA Peer Support Coalition Annual Conference

June 14, 2019

James Kimmel, Jr. will be speaking at the 2019 PA Peer Support Coalition Annual Conference. His topic will be: “Forensic Peer Support and Violence Prevention.”

A common motivation for many forms of violence is the individual’s desire to retaliate for perceived past injustices. A recent pilot study by the Yale Program on Recovery and Community Health has shown the “Nonjustice System” guided mock trial method effective in reducing revenge desires among victims of perceived injustice. The method has been used as part of forensic peer support in 7 Pennsylvania counties in both jail (re-entry) and community settings. We will review the Yale study and train peer specialists to use the Nonjustice System method.
