    Addressing Violence from the Inside: A Session with THRIVE at Cook County Jail

    Wednesday, Oct 17, 2018 9:30 - 11:45 AM @ Cook County Jail - Mental Health Transition Center
    This event is over! Please check the 2021 schedule.
    LAB - Labs bring together small groups for an exclusive, first-hand look into what happens behind the scenes at some of the most innovative companies, community leaders and institutions around Chicago.

    The Therapeutic Healing Recovery Initiative for Vitality and Empowerment program (THRIVE) at the Cook County Jail serves women who suffer from addiction and seeks to establish thought patterns and habits that prevent future substance use. THRIVE’s hopeful, yet grounded, holistic approach is aimed towards women with non-violent drug-related charges who have a history of substance abuse, trauma and/or mental illness, and the program provides them with Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), individual and group counseling. The program also provides psycho-educational groups focused on parenting, anger management, domestic violence, mental illness and substance abuse, and re-entry planning among other services. Get a unique opportunity to participate directly in a THRIVE session at this Lab that takes you inside Cook County Jail. Then, be part of a small-group discussion, hearing the women's stories and plans for the future in their own words.
