The Prison Library Primer Book Excerpt:

In this century the central and quintessential correctional facility program ought to be the library. While the U.S. prison industry has embraced a massive reentry movement emphasizing literacy and job readiness for former felons, prison libraries have been ignored as potential sources for reintegration. In The Prison Library Primer: A Program for the Twenty-First Century, Brenda Vogel addresses the unique challenges facing the prison librarian. This practical guide to operating and promoting a correctional library focuses on the basic priorities: collection development; location, space planning, and furnishing suggestions; information on court decisions and legislation affecting prisoners' rights. This volume also includes an information-skills training curriculum, sample administration policies, essential digital and print sources, and community support resources. Equipped with practical library science tools and creative solutions, The Prison Library Primer is an invaluable resource that will help the librarian and library advocate develop, grow, and maintain an effective, user-centered library program.

College for Convicts Book Excerpt:

The United States accounts for 5 percent of the world’s population, yet incarcerates about 25 percent of the world’s prisoners. Examining a wealth of studies by researchers and correctional professionals, and the experience of educators, this book shows recidivism rates drop in direct correlation with the amount of education prisoners receive, and the rate drops dramatically with each additional level of education attained. Presenting a workable solution to America’s mass incarceration and recidivism problems, this book demonstrates that great fiscal benefits arise when modest sums are spent educating prisoners. Educating prisoners brings a reduction in crime and social disruption, reduced domestic spending and a rise in quality of life. Instructors considering this book for use in a course may request an examination copy here.

From Prison to Possibilities Book Excerpt:

The purpose of this book is to develop a plan for your successful transition from incarceration to living a full and productive life post-release. Ideally, the process of getting ready for the transition starts six months prior to your release. The ideal structure is for you to have a mentor and go through this program every week while still in prison and twelve weeks post-incarceration. The objective is to reduce recidivism by addressing community-reintegration issues and providing a structure for transition success. In other words, to keep you from returning to prison by helping you build a successful life as you address typical problems in the free world outside of the prison walls! The book provides some prework to get you ready to reach out to a mentor. Once you are ready, you and your mentor will meet weekly to discuss the chapter. The design of the book is to provide you with an opportunity to work on life and employability skills. Finally, a checklist and templates are provided to ensure post-release readiness. By the grace of God, most people have not been incarcerated and probably cannot imagine how their life would have turned out if they had gone to prison. It is my prayer that if you or your family member or a church partner are reading this book, they will believe you are worth it and want to reinvest in you to give you a second chance. We all deserve a second chance. Certainly, God has provided for a lifetime of chances!

Prison Dog Programs Book Excerpt:

This edited volume brings together a diverse group of contributors to create a review of research and an agenda for the future of dog care and training in correctional facilities. Bolstered by research that documents the potential benefits of HAI, many correctional facilities have implemented prison dog programs that involve inmates in the care and training of canines, not only as family dogs but also as service dogs for people with psychological and/or physical disabilities. Providing an evidence-based treatment of the topic, this book also draws upon the vast practical experience of individuals who have successfully begun, maintained, improved, and evaluated various types of dog programs with inmates; it includes first-person perspectives from all of the stakeholders in a prison dog program—the corrections staff, the recipients of the dogs, the inmate/trainers, and the community volunteers and sponsors Human-animal interaction (HAI) is a burgeoning field of research that spans different disciplines: corrections, psychology, education, social work, animal welfare, and veterinary medicine, to name a few. Written for an array of professionals interested in prison dog programs, the book will hold special interest for researchers in criminal justice and corrections, forensic psychology, and to those with a commitment to promoting the ideals of rehabilitation, desistance thinking, restorative justice, and re-entry tools for inmates.

Inmates Narratives and Discursive Discipline in Prison Book Excerpt:

The question of ‘what works’ in offender treatment has dominated the field of prisoner re-entry and recidivism research for the last thirty years. One of the primary ways the criminal justice system tries to reduce the rates of recidivism among offenders is through the use of cognitive behavioural programs (CBP) as in-prison intervention strategies. The emphasis for these programs is on the idea that inmates are in prison because they made poor choices and bad decisions. Inmates’ thinking is characterized as flawed and the purpose of the program is to teach them to think and act in socially appropriate ways so they will be less inclined to return to prison after their release. This book delves into the heart of one such cognitive behavioural programme, examines its inner workings, its effects on inmates’ narrated experience and considers what happens when a CBP of substandard quality and integrity is used as a gateway for inmates’ release. Based on original empirical research, this book provides realistic suggestions for improving policy, for reforming current in-prison programs engaging in problematic practices and for instituting alternatives that take the needs of the inmates into greater account. This book is essential reading for students and academics engaged in the study of sociology, criminal justice, prisons, social policy, sentencing and punishment.

Getting Out Book Excerpt:

Prison ministry needs to be reevaluated. It just is not working. The typical approach to prison ministry is to lead an inmate to Christ to save his or her wretched soul from the pits of hell. However, what about the hell that a particular inmate will face upon release? Michael Bowe introduces a more wholistic approach that engages in the social gospel and restorative justice to address many of the concerns people face when leaving prison. He utilizes systems theory as an approach to address societal and family issues. Getting Out engages the reader with conversations and struggles real people face when leaving prison.

An Invisible Prison Book Excerpt:

AN INVISIBLE PRISON A true story of survival Alcoholism, drugs, and biker gangs are not what one would expect to find in the background of a person destined to become an internationally known motivational speaker. Yet in her starkly honest autobiography, Susan Armstrong reveals many long-hidden secrets from her past and shares her last-chance struggle for recovery. It's hard to imagine being so addicted to substances, and so bereft of self-esteem that living in a gang with a dysfunctional and abusive partner becomes an acceptable lifestyle. Only someone who has been there and has since reclaimed her life can share her perilous experiences with authentic memory. This riveting story, told in vivid and often disturbing detail, will leave readers with a new understanding of the compelling human need to seek approval. Simply to have survived a life as self-destructive as the one Susan describes would make a remarkable story in itself. That she has gone on to build an enviable record of success as a corporate trainer with a long list of Fortune 100 clients makes this a truly inspirational tale. Her story offers hope to countless others who may feel their lives are without worth or promise.
