CSP International Men's Day 2018 Greeting
At age 14, Trinidadian born Ernest Nurse migrated to the USA, and fell victim to a life of crime and gang violence. At age 19 he was arrested and sentenced to 25 years to Life Imprisonment for murder. Whiles serving his Prison sentence at a Maximum Security Prison in the USA, he meet Claudette Spencer, a brilliant outspoken American Attorney at Law and Civil Rights Activist who was investigating an incident of Ku Klux Klan activity at Elmira Correctional Facility in New York. Ernest was interviewed by Claudette who went on to become his beacon of hope, inspiration, mentor and eventually - his Wife.
Throughout the years in-spite of his very dark circumstances, he found the Courage to Transform into a Beacon of Positive light, enrolling in every positive program offered in the Prison. From earning a Degree, to becoming a Teacher, Musician, Chef, and Positive Mentor to others serving lifetime in Prison.
After a long hard fight, he was eventually released, and returned to Trinidad where he went on to accomplish extraordinary and distinguish work in Trinidad & Tobago. From working with destitute and homeless kids on the streets of Trinidad & Tobago to mediating and encouraging peace and non violent behaviour in the Deadliest of Communities in Trinidad & Tobago.
He went on to save Countless Lives from a life of Crime and Deviant behaviour to say the least. His amazing wife Claudette wrote a Best Selling book. An autobiography titled, “Memoirs of A Prison Lawyer - Prison Wife”.
This book is an absolute Movie by any means, and a must have, and must read! We present to you this Documentary. An extract from the book based on the True Life Story of these two extra-ordinary people. Thank you very much Claudette Spencer-Nurse for writing this book which has become a fountain of light, and education for People, in and out of Prison. We salute your courage, love, faith and distinguished example.#thepositivesintt

Breaking the Cycle and Camika were well received with a standing ovation at the Trinidad and Tobago Film Festival.
To break the cycle, we must first speak up! Thank you to Camika and her family for opening up about the effects of domestic violence and spreading the message that Change Is Possible. #StandAgainstAbuse #StandAgainstDomesticViolence #BeAGoodCitizen
One in three women are victims of domestic abuse. It is a tragedy that happens in every sector of society regardless of class, race, religion, education or gender. Breaking The Cycle is Camika’s story of how she moved from victim to survivor. The documentary was premiered at the Trinidad and Tobago Film Festival on Monday 24th September 2018.

HOW TO DEAL WITH A CYBER BULLY:
1. Don’t respond to any messages or posts written about you, no matter how hurtful or untrue.
2. Don't seek revenge on a cyberbully by becoming a cyberbully yourself.
3. Save the evidence. Keep abusive text messages or screenshots and report them to a trusted adult.
4. Report threats of harm and inappropriate sexual messages to the police. These actions may be prosecuted by law.
5. Prevent further communication by blocking their email address, phone number, and social media profiles. Report their activities to the sites they use to target you.
It can be difficult to identify emotionally abusive behaviour. The following actions can be classified as emotional child abuse:
1. Humiliating or constantly criticising a child
2. Threatening, shouting at a child or calling them names
3. Making the child the subject of jokes, or using sarcasm to hurt a child
4. Not recognizing a child's own individuality
5. Pushing a child too hard or not recognizing their limitations
6. Exposing a child to distressing events or interactions such as domestic abuse or drug taking
7. Not allowing them to have friends
8. never saying anything kind, expressing positive feelings or congratulating a child on successes
