Therapeutic work with an Imprisonment for Public Protection prisoner caught up in the criminal justice system
BySabina Amiga
Pages 14

This chapter is about the specific difficulties Imprisonment for Public Protection (IPP) prisoners share, including hopelessness and the near enough impossibility of proving they are no longer a risk to others. Jenny, whose case highlights these issues, has kindly given me permission to use some material from our work together; her name and details have been disguised. Jenny feels passionate about helping other IPP prisoners who are still incarcerated.
