The Voices of Violence Series by The Glendon Association
Effective therapy with criminals has the power to significantly reduce violence in our communities, yet forensic populations can be volatile and especially intimidating to work with. These videos provide deep insights into one of society's most intractable issues, and in opposition to the punitive approach to violence prevention, make a compelling case for treating violent offenders with human dignity and responding to violence with psychological treatment and education. It will likewise challenge the viewers to see the humanity within violent individuals and inspire new ways to think about how to reduce violence in our communities. These videos offer an extraordinary look into the psychological causes of violence by examining the perspectives of violent offenders, and providing an inside view of two different yet dramatically successful group therapy programs offered behind bars to men who have committed the most extreme violent acts-from assault and rape to murder. The Glendon Association publishes books, videos, and articles, performs research and conducts workshops in its mission to save lives and help people create more meaningful lives by addressing the social problems of suicide, child abuse, violence, and troubled interpersonal relationships.
