Thrive Inside offers a range of courses for residents in custody and people in recovery from addictions to support the well-being of residents and prison staff.
(Currently suspended due to COVID)
While one-off workshops or sessions can be arranged, participants get the best results from regular weekly groups.
For example, the standard rolling 8-week course is delivered as a two to two and a half hour session each week, supported by the workbook, handbook and in-cell audio pack which residents can use to practice on their own in-cell or environment.
Shorter lunchtime sessions of 30 minutes can be made available to staff.
Plans are in place to offer a further material and even teacher training programmes in the future.
In addition to courses, more information is available about iRest meditation in the book The iRest Programme for PTSD by Dr Richard Miller, PhD, available from Amazon.
