Web radio: Loss and reintegration into family life

After a short hiatus, the web radio show is back and is starting at a new time.  Makeba and I will be hosting the next show on Wednesday, June 24 at 9 p.m.  We’ll be talking to Dr. Harland Kessaris, a psychologist who specializes in reintegration into family life following a prison term.  You may remember Dr. Kessaris from an interview he did with Tiffany Garlic last year around the holidays.  We decided to bring him back to talk about what families can do to cope with the loss of a loved one to the prison system and how the family on the outside can reconnect with a loved one behind bars.  He will also talk about both family and social dynamics and what formerly incarcerated individuals can do to reintegrate into family life.

Listen live online at http://www.blogtalkradio.com/familylifebehindbars or by calling (347) 326-9981.  We definitely want this to be an audience driven discussion so we highly encourage you to call in to ask Dr. Kessaris your question.  If you would like advice or have a question during the show, simply dial (347) 326-9981, press 1 on your phone and wait to be patched in.  Keep in mind that the number is a New York number so your phone company may charge long distance fees.  If you would like a question asked during the show, please leave your question in the comment section below and I will be sure to get it answered.

UPDATE: We have added another guest for tomorrow nights show and his name is Darryl King.  King served over 20 years behind bars and was released in 1993.  He’ll be talking about his transition from the cell to society and the struggles he had to overcome.
