Good Vibrations case study in new book “Interventions in Criminal Justice”

A new book, “Interventions in Criminal Justice”, out shortly, has a chapter by Laura Caufield and Professor David Wilson on the role of arts in prisons.  Good Vibrations is used as a case study.  The rest of the book looks really interesting too…

“This exciting new book brings together the experiences and expertise of a range of practitioners who work within criminal justice and provides a broad and informative account of a variety of intervention techniques. From pharmacological approaches, through the treatment of various specific conditions and on to the use of poetry and art by prisoners, the book offers a series of thought-provoking chapters that will help inform the practice of anyone who works with this vulnerable population.
The book is edited by Peter Jones, a leading figure in the field of working therapeutically with offenders.
