Beyond Punishment
Monday, October 14, 2019

In partnership with the UNM Department of Communication & Journalism, the Corinne Wolfe Center for Child & Family Justice, and the UNM School of Law, Searchlight New Mexico presents Beyond Punishment, a free community forum on classroom discipline.  Searchlight New Mexico recently published an article in collaboration with The Guardian addressing the issue of New Mexico schools secretly restraining and secluding students.  Beyond Punishment will feature child psychologist Ross Green and Albuquerque attorney Gail Stewart, both of whom will discuss alternatives to these harsh forms of classroom discipline.

The event is taking place on Monday, October 14, 2019 from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM.  As seating is limited, UNM Law asks that attendees register by Friday, October 11, 2019 here.

Furthermore, the UNM Health Sciences Office of Interprofessional Education and the Medical-Legal Alliance of the UNM School of Law Legal Clinic are co-producing a multidisciplinary conference titled Ethics, Values and Shared Decision-Making: Interprofessional Interactions for Improved Health Outcomes.  The conference will provide a unique opportunity to introduce an evidence-informed practice in health care environments that incorporates multiple perspectives along with areas of expertise and insight in partnership with patients, families, and communities to improve health care delivery and outcomes.  In addition to UNM faculty and staff, the event is open to UNM undergraduates and professional students as well as any students attending institutions of higher learning in New Mexico.
