#4290  Our bestselling mental health and self-renewal resource designed specifically for incarcerated women. Like anger, women and men deal differently with loss and renewal. This book shows such women how to accept responsibility and put their lives back on track. Many incarcerated women make decisions that have devastating consequences for them and their loved ones. Experiencing feelings of loss and grief, incarcerated mothers also feel shame and grief for failing as parents. Many also have lost jobs, their spirituality, and their dreams and goals in life. As their lives spiral out of control, many quietly become angry and escape into alcohol and drugs. This workbook helps such women understand their past and rise above their history and circumstances.
