The book provides exercises to do with groups and individuals and is a useful toolkit for those who work in the field of personal development. Follow the advice in this book and you will live longer and happier.
Terry Bianchini has written a practical and helpful book for everyone'.
Bianchini writes from many years of experience of empathetic and resilient engagement with the group he terms 'defiant men'. The reader is helped to understand their lives through case examples, personal anecdotes and creative solutions.
The book is suitable as a teaching and learning tool for those working with men in prison settings who facilitate individual or group discussion and learning opportunities. There is ample material in carefully constructed lesson plans around themes which explore the main theme of the book that prisons are created in our head and that freeing ourselves takes more than reconising a custodial sentence, which was imposed and in which individuals are 'doing their time'. Bianchini has written an honest book, which reflects his observations comparisons between phusical incarceration and lessons which can improve the quality of our lives...I recommend this book to anyone who support individuals, groups or does advice work and wants a structured developmental approach to hearing what people are really saying in order to help them and ourselves become 'unstuck'.`
