Frequently Asked Questions About A New Direction
Inmates, not actors, candidly discuss the tactics they have used to exact power and control over others--in prison and out of prison. In a group setting as participants in a cognitive-behavioral treatment program, the inmates share personal stories about manipulating, intimidating, physically assaulting, and even murdering individuals who got in the way of what they wanted. Raw, real, and tragic, the inmates' stories reveal:
- how distorted thoughts and unresolved feelings fuel criminal behavior
- why using drugs and committing crimes are fundamentally linked
- what it really means to take charge of your life and respect others
