By Robin Casarjian
#6379 This is the groundbreaking book for prisoner healing and rehabilitation – a guide that instructs, encourages, and speaks to prisoners, providing a path to behavioral change, dignity, and respect – for oneself and for others.
Working with hundreds of prisoners over eight years, veteran teacher and counselor Robin Casarjian developed a program that taught incarcerated men and women how to confront issues that were central to their criminal and addictive behavior.
Through group sessions and independent work, prisoners learned how to deal constructively with conflict and hostility. They learned ways to break lifelong patterns of dysfunction in order to find greater emotional balance, a sense of self-esteem, and the power to choose positive behavior.
The book can be used independently or in group courses in many settings and formats. Prisoners use the book for self-study over months and even years. Counselors and chaplains use Houses of Healing to complement their treatment programs and/or create entirely new programs.
Houses of Healing courses are led by mental health and substance abuse counselors, chaplains, volunteers, and even prisoners.
The book is available in English and in Spanish (Casas de Curacion), and is used as a self-help book or in small informal groups and facilitator-led classes.
