This week we finished a Loss course with several ladies, all suffering major loss in their lives. Many prisoners have never really dealt with these issues and they can be contributing factors to their crime. They all said that they had found it beneficial and although very emotional, well worth it. We hope that they will continue dealing with their losses, and that they will learn to live out of what they have learnt.
In addition, we have been doing Victim Awareness courses with several ladies, looking at the harm and hurt caused by their actions and crimes. This work is never easy for the ladies to engage in but they do well to see it through and we know it helps in reducing the re-offending rate.
