DataGeek Series: The Juvenile (In)justice system: Are we punishing youth who are grieving? with Deven Wisner
Show Notes

In this episode, we look at some data as relates the the juvenile (In)justice system and ways in which our systems perpetuate disproportional representation of youth of color and don't support what we know works. Our guest invites us to look at how our system is based on society having deprived youth of opportunities to grieve. Programs that provide space to grieve have been successful. Are we punishing youth who are just grieving?

Our guest, Deven (he/him) is the Managing Partner of Viable Insights. Through collaboratively designed and implemented methods, and interpersonal effectiveness, Deven facilitates dialogue to support a space conducive to community-led transformation. Deven has also taught Organizational Behavior and Psychology of Leadership at the University of Arizona. Deven serves as the 2021-2022 Past-President Elect of the Arizona Evaluation Network. Bringing all of this together, Deven co-hosts Radical (Re)Imagining, a podcast intent on setting a collaborative reflective space for co-creating a collective vision for being more human in our work lives through reflective practice, interpersonal development, and embodied healing.

Systems work:
1. Part of the work includes Yosso’s Cultural Wealth model (from my perspective), even though we see the ultimate solution as burning it all down.
2. Appreciate Andreotti et al.’s approach to hospicing systems, and this idea of learning from them. On page 8, I see some grief aspects, too.
