MANAGER’S THOUGHTS Given the huge mandate of the Saint Lucia Boys Training Centre (BTC), we strive to conduct programmes and activities that are geared towards the rehabilitation, integration and discipline of the youth at risk in Saint Lucia. Despite the numerous challenges that we face daily, management and staff work very hard to execute programmes that touch all facets of the lives of wards in our care.This is achieved through the reinforcement of positive behaviour and the development of inter and intra personal skills, which aid the young men to cope with different situations upon their release from the BTC. As the manager of this facility, it brings me great joy to set the tone for the implementation of the various programmes and activities that help us realize our mandate as an agency of the Ministry of Social Transformation, Local Government and Community Empowerment. It is our hope, that each young man who leaves the BTC, becomes a success story and makes a positive contribution to his respective community.

A BRIEF HISTORY Her Royal Highness, Princess Margaret, officially opened the Boys Industrial School, on February 20th 1960 at Massade, Gros Islet. At that time, it housed seventeen (17) delinquent male juveniles and was staffed by three (3) persons. The school was the brainchild of Sir Stanislaus James. Sir James was the first trained Social Worker and first Probation Officer in Saint Lucia, and he brought about the establishment of this institution through sheer perseverance and determination. In 1974, on the recommendation of a Government appointed advisor, the Boys Industrial School was renamed Saint Lucia Boys Training Centre and its mandate was changed to include boys in need of care and protection.

ADMISSIONS All wards are committed to the Centre by an order of the Family Court in two categories: • Children in conflict with the law: boys under the age of 16 who have committed crimes. • Care & Protection: Boys who have not committed any crime but who have been truant at their schools; are disruptive in the home or school environment; or children who do not have parents/guardians with the ability to meet their needs. BTC ward range in age from 10 to 18

EDITOR’S NOTES Thank you for taking the time to read and educate yourself about the Saint Lucia Boys Training Centre. It is my pleasure to publish this newsletter, which includes the activities, programmes and projects that directly and indirectly influence the youth at risk in our nation. Furthermore, it is the passion and dedication of the management, staff and volunteers that continue to be instrumental in changing the lives of wards at the Boys Training Centre (BTC). It is my hope that individuals and agencies get involved in the rehabilitation process of the wards, eventually galvanizing all our resources to cultivate positive, law-biding and creative young men to lead the Saint Lucian society. Happy reading.

years. However, a ward is not admitted once he has attained the age of 16 years.

THE STRUCTURE The Centre currently operates programmes, which are synchronized with the mainstream school timetable and every ward is expected to attend vocational training and/or remedial education classes. At regular breaks in the school year, wards are allowed home leave- a privilege earned for good behaviour. As each ward’s abilities are identified, he is given extra support with these specific abilities. The Centre is now looking to the wider community to develop formal apprenticeship programmes. Apprenticeship is mostly within the fields of Auto mechanics, Welding, Agriculture and Woodwork. In additon, there are intra and extra mural activities and programmes in which the wards participate in throughout their stay at the BTC.

Good News Project The Good News Project continues visit the Boys Training Centre providing volunteer services to the staff and wards. Good News Project began with a pioneer group of five musicians from Wausau who wanted to share their talents with people in the West Indies. In 1983, the first year, they traveled to St. Lucia with their instruments, voices and open minds. As they traveled around, the St. Lucians would wave and call “Workshop!” as a way of greeting the group (The group gave music workshops to local institutions). A better name was needed and they quickly decided on ‘Good News’. Talking with St. Lucian leaders, those musicians realized that the country could use much more than music-sharing, and so a planning group returned in 1984. The first official group of Good News Volunteers returned in 1985 to start a legacy of hands-on volunteering and relationship building that has continued ever since.

asseterre, St. Kittis-April 20th - 24th. Twenty-four (24) representatives from the Organization of Eastern Caribbean States (OECS) were trained and certified as Group Facilitators in the highly esteemed cognitive-behavioral program—the Aggression Replacement Training® (ART). The training was made possible through the sponsorship of the regional body’s Juvenile Justice Reform Project (JJRP). Dr. Barry Glick, who co-founded the ART® program with the late Dr. Arnold P. Goldstein over a quarter century ago, was the chief facilitator for this training. His wife, Joan Glick, was the co-facilitator. Dr. Glick and his wife were ably assisted

Page 24

administratively by Velita Heholt of the OECS Commission in the capacity of Administrative Assistant of the JJRP. Her tireless work (most of it behind the scenes), ensured the smooth running of the training. Numerically, the trained group facilitators of the ART program represent six member states as follows: Antigua & Barbuda (4), Commonwealth of Dominica (4), Grenada (3), St. Kitts & Nevis (5), Saint Lucia (5), St. Vincent & The Grenadines (3). Members of the Saint Lucia contingent who will now serve as local group facilitators of ART® are Patrick Fearon (Boys Training Centre), Shahini Gravillis (Family Court), Marian Modest (Upton Garden

Girls’ Centre), Maria Flavien (New Beginnings Transit Home) and Alina Auguste (Department of Probation and Parole Services). In a specific sense, ART® seeks to teach skills that clients never previously acquired (Habilitation), as opposed to attempting to reinstate previously learned skills, qualities or behaviours that have gone into disuse (Rehabiliation). ART® is recognized as a very effective intervention for juveniles at risk who display aggressive behaviour, as well as for adults. ART® is described as a cognitive-behavioural, multimodal curriculum that is composed of three interdependent components: 1. Social Skills

(Behavioural), which teaches clients what to do in anger-producing situations. Teaching this component includes the use of the tools of Modeling and Role Playing. 2. Anger Control Training (Affective), which seeks to diminish the occurrence of anger arousal in chronically aggressive clients. Essentially, clients become equipped with the means to acquire self-control to deal effectively with an impulse whenever anger is aroused. In Anger Control Training, persons effectively learn what not to do when angry. 3. Moral Reasoning (Cognitive) is based on Kohlberg’s Theory of Moral Stages (specifically the first four stages, namely, Power, Making of Deals, Mutuality and Systems. The

Moral Reasoning component is facilitated through the use of Problem Scenarios in which choices, which typically range from Immature Moralities through Mature Moralities, are made by peers in the group. Consequently, particular emphasis is placed on the role of peers throughout the Moral Reasoning component of the program. In order to maintain the fidelity and integrity of the ART® program, certain factors must be adhered to throughout its implementation. An ART® group should comprise twelve (12) clients (minimum 10) and should run for a period of ten (10) weeks—a total of thirty (30) group hours. Group sessions should take

place three times per week at regular intervals, for example, Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 9:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. The sessions each week follow a particular order, namely, the first session of the week is Social Skills, the second is Anger Control Training, while the third is Moral Reasoning. Physical resources such as Flip Charts, Note Cards, Home Work Assignments, Projector, etc., are essential. It is imperative that ART® group facilitators be afforded a minimum of six hours per week for program preparation and actual group facilitation in order to run the program effectively. Two trained facilitators are normally needed to conduct each session.
