At what age can you be charged as an adult?
Only two states - New York and North Carolina - charge youth 16 years and older as adults.
Youth incarcerated with adults have a difficult time recovering from the isolation, abuse, and conditions inside adult jails and prisons. This needs to change, and the Raise the Age campaign seeks to ensure that youth offenders are handled in the juvenile justice system where they can receive the rehabilitation they need to improve their lives. Come learn about this important campaign and why the governor is working to Raise the Age of juvenile jurisdiction.

From Impasse to Intimacy: A Multi-Cultural Integrative Framework for Couples Therapy
Michele Scheinkman, March 6th, 2015
When couples come to therapy their yearnings for intimacy are often hidden behind disappointments, encrusted resentments, and power struggles. Intimacy is a highly subjective notion - informed by contextual, cultural and personal meanings – we will consider a broad multicultural framework to help us navigate the turbulence of couples current expectations. We will examine how therapists can work in a collaboratively with the couple to reduce escalation, translate resentments into narratives of wishes and yearnings, and how through this process create the necessary safety for self-disclosure of their unique preferred forms of intimate relating.
