“A large percentage of prisoners are inward looking, 90% roughly, they’re only interested in their challenges, when they get out, their sentences, it’s all about them but when they realise their own well being, which allows a lot of rubbish from their mind to fall away, it’s fascinating all of the sudden it becomes about other people. They ring their families, they’re interested in helping others. They come into the group pretty much saying what can you do for me and they end up saying what can we do for you. It’s a phenomenal side effect. – Jacqueline Hollows
Enjoy the conversation Jacqueline Hollows from Beyond Recovery has with Steph and Kaye about reforming UK prisons from the inside out, sharing a message for Rt Hon Michael Gove MP about Jacqueline’s desire for more people & staff inside prisons to receive State of Mind training to create a better system from the bottom up.
“The answer is blindingly obvious, straight forward & relatively cheap. And immediate. We could, within 12 months have a totally different system just by giving everyone State of Mind / Three Principles training. I saw someone who was previously a liability, cost & strain on the system, is now an asset and part of creating a better system.”
