Course Description
Large Muscle Exercise (LME) Program.
The Supreme Court of Ohio Judicial
College, in coordination with the Ohio
Juvenile Detention Services Association, is
pleased to provide this free one and onehalf day course for front line staff in
Ohio’s 39 juvenile detention centers.
Each child must receive an hour of Large
Muscle Exercise daily to meet
Department of Youth Services standards.
Youth often do not want to participate in
these programs because they receive no
school credit and the same routine dayafter-day becomes boring and stale. This
session will showcase a dynamic program
of movement and stretching, developed
by the Warren County Juvenile Detention
Center, that the youth not only enjoy but
for which they also receive school gym
Sessions will focus on a variety of relevant
topics critical for the professional officer.
Session will include the following:
Trauma Focused Services in Detention
A high number of youth who come into
contact with the Juvenile Justice system have
long histories of traumatic experiences.
This session will provide knowledge about
evidence-informed skills and practice in
using these skills for working with this
population in a corrections setting.
Verbal De-escalation Skills for the
Juvenile Detention Officer
Although conflict is inevitable in juvenile
correctional facilities, it is critical to
manage this conflict in a way that
maintains professionalism, encourages
non-violent resolution, and allows all
those involved to increase the likelihood
of positive outcomes in the future. This
session is designed to help develop the
skills necessary to resolve conflicts before
they escalate into explosive situations.
Understanding the Dynamics of Bullying
and Youth
Bullying is a part of life for most youth.
Understanding the types of bullying and
its impact will help officers to be able to
respond better to youth either as victims
or perpetrators of bullying. These skills
will help to create and maintain safer
environments in detention centers.
