How our clients describe their training

"Participants who have nothing to do with the inside of a prison, and yet find themselves facing themselves and their assumptions right there. Because the unexpected setting, the confronting security measures, it does something to a person. The surprise among the participants was all the greater when they quickly managed to establish a sincere connection with the inmates and themselves. A connection full of humor, gratitude, mutual understanding, and genuine curiosity about each other. And what conversations arose from it. That the inmate longs for freedom so much, and that those who are free often feel so imprisoned, struck a beautiful chord."
