Prison and Desistance - (Re)turning point?

Prison and Desistance - (Re)turning point?

'What makes a prison sentence a turning point for some prisoners? What can be done to make this more common? And what needs to be in place for turning points to lead to a crime-free life after release?'

These were the questions explored at a recent University of Glasgow/SCCJR seminar. The speakers, Dr Esther van Ginneken, Dr Marguerite Schinkel and Prof Shadd Maruna, highlighted their research, which had used prisoners stories and reflections on their experience to build a textured picture of what the process of change is like within and following prison. 

Audio Files of the talk are now available from Glasgow Sociology here
