Available Now!! Aprovechar el Tiempo – workbook designed to be used in conjunction with the book Houses of Healing: A Prisoner’s Guide to Inner Power and Freedom (Una Guia Del Prisonero Para El Poder Y La Libertad Interiores)
Making Time Count leads participants through the nationally recognized Houses of Healing program using clear, easy-to-follow instructions, exercises, and activities. It provides access to high-impact programming to anyone with a modest reading level, a pen or pencil, and a willingness to engage in rehabilitative programming. It was created for use in highly restricted housing (solitary and administrative segregation) as well as in the general population.
Until recently, The Houses of Healing program was largely delivered through groups using the Houses of Healing Facilitator’s Manual, conducted by staff, volunteers, and in some cases, incarcerated individuals. The restricted movement in prisons and jails resulting from the COVID pandemic has increased the need for high-quality programming regardless of an individual’s ability to participate in out-of-cell programming. Aprovechar el Tiempo fills this need.
