In Prison-wise: The Psychology of Incarceration, The Potential for Change, I discuss the internal world of inmates, the adjustments they must make, the institution of prison, and reforms that are needed. This book is not intended to present policies and procedures. It is also not a sanitized version of prisons. It is a frank discussion about what prisons are like, the impact it has on inmates, and realistic ways to reform the prison system. It was written for people concerned about crime rates, incarceration rates, and the ways it has affected individuals and their families. My outlook comes from 15 years of experience working in the prisons as a clinical psychologist, talking to and treating inmates. As with There’s no Crying in Prison, while the names of institutions, individuals, and circumstances have been changed to protect the identity of the individuals who work and live here, it’s a factual account. I hope this book will be read by students of criminal justice, correctional staff, inmates and families, and especially the general public. I want interested parties to understand the world of prisons and prisoners. Perhaps it will provide a spark so that more people will advocate for creating improved prisons. Ultimately, I would like to see ex-felons have the opportunity to reenter society better prepared to become lasting contributors.
