Crime is an incredibly complex and heartbreaking social problem. In Strength Check, Dr. Andy Wilczak talks about both contemporary justice issues and the history of crime with a focus on mental health, victimization, and innovative ways to try to find out what justice looks like in the 21st century. This is a show about destigmatizing all of the ways that people are suffering and sharing stories about resilience and redemption. This is also a show that is meant to chronicle an ongoing project tentatively titled Play for Progress, which will be using Dungeons & Dragons and other forms of narrative storytelling to help high school and college students who have experienced trauma in the past build their social capital and self-efficacy and become agents of change in their own schools and communities.
