About this Book
There are over 2 million American citizens incarcerated in this
country. Many of those people have family members or other loved ones on
the outside. All of them have been adversely affected by the
incarcerated of the loved ones to various degrees. And those loved ones
can be a tremendous help and resource for the offender when he/she
finally gets out of prison. But in many cases, the loved one on the
outside has no clue what to do to help their incarcerated loved one.
Programs seem to be scarce. Many people asked for help turn in the other
direction. Oftentimes the person searching for help finds himself or
herself just as lost as the person inside the walls.
addresses that experience. This publication is for anyone who is
affected by the incarceration, either past or present, of a loved one
and wants to do something to help. The book covers the following topics:
• Understanding the criminal mind
• Am I ready to do this?
• Differentiating between the "right" help and the "wrong" help.
• How to find resources
• The return home
