Cognitive Restructuring through Dreams and Imagery: Descriptive Analysis of a Women's Prison-Based Program
DeHart, Dana
Journal of Offender Rehabilitation, v49 n1 p23-38 2010
This report describes process and outcome evaluation of an innovative program based in a women's maximum-security correctional facility. Methodology included review of program materials, unobtrusive observation of group process, participant evaluation forms, focus groups, and individual interviews with current and former program participants. Findings indicate that the program was a great source of emotional respite, release, and support for the women, with women describing increased insights into themselves, their traumas, and their crimes. Implications are discussed, including popular appeal of dream work and its potential clinical relevance to prisoners' inner conflicts. (Contains 2 figures.)
