Healing in Prison | Copyright 2020
The original idea was to teach simple Kinesiology techniques to inmates to help them cope with the stressful demands of incarceration. A major objective was to teach inmates the value of taking responsibility for their actions and to equip them with the confidence and skills to ensure successful rehabilitation and re-integration into society. (Currently, more than 25% are re-arrested within 6 months).
Over time, specific, universal stress issues were identified and in order to assist, a life skills paper was written after each training session, which became the backbone of this book.’
Later, carefully selected inmates were taught to facilitate classes for those who could not understand English or would never have volunteered for a course of their own volition. To date, over a 1000 inmates have completed the special workshops run by inmates themselves.
Stress Management through Kinesiology Techniques.
The Life Skills within this book are designed to enable the reader to grow and move forward into a more fulfilling life.
The purpose of this book is to grow hope, self-respect and a sense of inner peace.
Gabby’s vision is for this book to become available to every inmate in South Africa and globally.
This is perhaps a ‘world first’ approach that will actively rehabilitate offenders back into society, reducing re-arrest rates, and making our world a safer place.
