Repeat offenses are a major risk after release from prison. The specific programs we offer at our prisons aim to reduce the rate of re-offending.
Understanding in order to change
To help inmates grasp the consequences of their acts, our teams have developed programs focused on their responsibilities and circumstances.
Our work sessions bring together delinquents and victims in discussion groups where offenders are made to realize the consequences of criminal acts. The groups take an honest look at the effects of crime, the harm it causes to others and the importance of being accountable for one’s actions. During the sessions, offenders explore individually the notion of “personal responsibility”. In the United Kingdom, our Sycomore Tree program supports prisoners during the process of developing awareness and changing their behavior.
