The Practitioner’s Corner Season 1, Episode 2 – September 21, 2018
Welcome to The Practitioner’s Corner, a podcast dedicated to health, safety and social justice. Darryl Green will be joining host, Dr. Johnny Rice II, to discuss his work in the restorative justice movement and his recommendations for how to heal from trauma and harm.
Darryl Green was born and raised in Baltimore, Maryland and has lived all over the city growing up and later lived in the Park Heights area. He went to Catholic Schools growing up. Still to this day he always extends his hand of friendship to help children, youth and families in need. Darryl’s mom was a foster parent so Darryl has a lot of brothers and sisters, all over the country. He was taught the meaning of service at a young age watching his parents serve as a nurturing force to children who were in need. His practice based experience encompasses the fields of mentoring, positive youth development, responsible fatherhood. In this episode Darryl discusses the tragedy that moved him into the restorative justice movement.
Today Darryl works with the non-profit he founded Deep Forgiveness, and works to move the needle in a positive direction in the lives of individuals who have experienced victimization and hurt.
