Successful Reentry - Tools to assimilate, accommodate and acclimate to change
Positive Attitude Development (PAD) is a unique motivational approach that invites the prisoner to discuss their beliefs and become self aware of their thinking’s inconsistencies. Reentry is all about Assimilating, Accommodating, and Acclimating to change. The attachments that each prisoner brings with them upon release can be obstacles for their successful reentry. The expectations and control issues are other areas that debilitate. And finally, the prisoner’s attitude about the world in which they are being release has a profound affect on their success. Level of Service Inventory-Revised (LSI-R) has successfully identify the risks and needs of those being released and PAD has lived and understands that experience.
Workshop participants will be provided an opportunity to learn more about the methodology of PAD and experience the process for building prisoner self awareness and self confidence. Participants will be given an example of the peaks and valleys of reentry and how they can be turned into a successful reentry or become the precursor to a reconviction.
