Misty Wallace 
Restorative Justice and Recovery

On October 18, 1992, Misty Wallace was shot in the face point blank and left for dead as she was being robbed of her vehicle. After many years of bitterness; she was able to contact and ultimately forgive the man that inflicted such horrible harm to her. Her journey was furthered after she discovered a restorative justice program called Bridges to Life that was founded by John Sage in Texas. Misty shares a powerful story of hope, forgiveness and transformation. She currently facilitates Bridges to Life in four Indiana Prisons with hopes of adding four more before the end of 2015.

YIN TO YANG: IMAGING THE HUMAN BRAIN MECHANISMS THAT REGULATE THE TENSION BETWEEN DRUG USE AND BEHAVIORAL RESTRAINT

Mammalian brains possess survival mechanisms that are in inherent tension: those instigating pleasure seeking, and those enforcing behavioral restraint. Addiction, and likely the vulnerability to it, represents a breakdown in the adaptive coordination between these functions. This symposium will introduce for a more general audience the nature and function of the brain’s “pleasure” and “restraint” networks. It will also show how human neuroimaging (including studies done at Indiana University) helps us to understand how pre-existing vulnerabilities in these systems might contribute to the development of addiction.

CRAFT

The Community Reinforcement Approach and Family Training (CRAFT) intervention is a scientifically based intervention designed to help concerned significant others (CSOs) to engage treatment-refusing substance abusers into treatment. This new intervention method was developed with the belief that since family members can, and do make important contribution in other areas of addiction treatment (i.e. family and couples therapy), that the CSO can play a powerful role in helping to engage the substance user who is in denial to submit to treatment. In addition, it is often the substance user who reports that family pressure or influence is the reason-sought treatment. Also, CSOs who attend the CRAFT program also benefit by becoming more independent and reducing their depression, anxiety and anger symptoms even if their loved one does not enter treatment.
