Synopsis: The Houses of Healing Training Manual is a guide for facilitating a 12-session course based on the book, Houses of Healing: A Prisoner’s guide to Inner Power and Freedom. The course draws from a variety of personal growth modalities, which include:
– Practicing meditation, self-regulation, and stress-management techniques
– Learning cognitive reframing and attitudinal healing
– Acknowledging, working with, and healing childhood trauma
– Transforming anger, resentment, and unhealthy guilt and shame
– Working with forgiveness
– Acknowledging and working with grief, the "silenced emotion"
– Nurturing spiritual growth
In the twelve-page introduction to the Manual, Robin Casarjian[link] offers personal suggestions to the reader on how to approach facilitating a Houses of Healing course. She encourages the reader to use the material in whatever ways suit him or her best. In the body of the Manual, she outlines twelve weekly sessions, explaining concepts and exercises and relating them to the text of Houses of Healing. Included with each week’s lessons are "Self Work" sheets that can be duplicated for the participants in the course.
About the Author: Robin Casarjian is the Founder and Director of the Lionheart Foundation and its National Emotional Literacy Project for Prisoners. She is a public speaker, writer, and consultant with extensive experience in education, stress management training, psychotherapy, and administration. She is author of Forgiveness: A Bold Choice for a Peaceful Heart (Bantam, 1992) and Houses of Healing: A Prisoner’s Guide to Inner Power and Freedom (Lionheart Press, 1995).
Whether in inner-city classrooms, hospitals, corporations or prisons, Robin’s work has been widely acclaimed for its clarity, directness, and unwavering vision of the enormous potential within all people.
Robin’s professional career began in 1973 when she received a graduate degree in education from Columbia University and became a teacher of special needs children. She moved on to direct a small alternative school for children with severe behavioral problems who had been excluded from the Boston Public Schools. She subsequently trained in the psychotherapeutic technique of Guided Imagery and Music, using visualization as a powerful creative resource, and started a private practice. From here her career expanded as a public speaker and workshop presenter.
Robin became well known as a stress-management consultant and trainer within the corporate, medical and lay community. She conducted trainings that were telecast live to 35 major corporate sites across the country and numerous trainings specifically for DuPont, the U.S. Army, and the Harvard Community Health Plan, where she taught for six years.
Working with people from diverse backgrounds and in different settings, Robin realized the central role that forgiveness plays in the healing process. Translating the age-old spiritual concept of forgiveness into a grounded, commonsense, day-to-day practice, she wrote her first book. Forgiveness: A Bold Choice for A Peaceful Heart, published by Bantam Books in 1992, is now available in seven languages.
Robin’s expertise in stress-management and forgiveness resulted in appearances on PBS and local and national talk shows, including ABC’s 20/20 and Oprah Winfrey. She has also been interviewed in numerous national magazines and publications.
Volunteering in a Massachusetts state prison in 1988, Robin developed a course for inmates entitled "Emotional Awareness/Emotional Healing." Witnessing the profound impact this course repeatedly had on prisoners, Robin was inspired to bring her work to prisoners across the country.
Her vision was to capture the essence of the course – respect, encouragement, new teachings and ideas, practical "hands on" exercises, questions for reflection and self-exploration, as well as personal accounts from prisoners – in a book that would be easily available to prisoners anywhere in the country.
Toward this end she wrote Houses of Healing: A Prisoner’s Guide to Inner Power and Freedom, with the intent of distributing free copies to all prison libraries in the U.S. She founded the non-profit Lionheart Foundation in 1992 in order to support this endeavor. She called the project The National Emotional Literacy Project for Prisoners (NELPP).
To accompany this book she wrote the Houses of Healing Training Manual and co-produced the Houses of Healing Educational & Training Video Series. A major thrust of her work with Lionheart now is setting up and facilitating statewide trainings for front-line correctional rehabilitation staff throughout the United States.
In Lionheart’s latest major initiative, the National Emotional Literacy Project for Youth-At-Risk, Robin is collaborating on the publication of a program for at-risk teens and young adults that will be distributed to juvenile detention facilities nationwide.
In response to the massive expansion of our nations’ prison system and its punitive emphasis, Robin also conducts grassroots public education about the need to make prisons places for people to heal (and about the exorbi
