Tags are what WordPress calls is keywords. I attach a small number of tags to every post to help people navigate between content with the same keywords. Tags may be people (David Gauke say), organisations (The Howard League, Revolving Doors Agency), themes (women offenders, homelessness) or specific items (heroin, cocaine, ROTL). If you’re looking to research a particular issue, they can be invaluable.
Fascinating new book by Doctor Hannah Graham explores how probation officers resolve conflicts between their own values & the requirements of their organisation
The authors’ final conclusion notes that recovery is not just about stopping negative behaviour; it is also about making a positive contribution and engaging in society. 79.4% of survey participants reported having volunteered in community or civic groups since the start of their recovery journeys.
While overcoming difficulties was a part of their journey towards the good life, goals such as a home and healthy relationships were as important to these individuals as most people who don’t face their challenges. The report is enlivened by a range of collages which were the key tool used by participants to express their aspirations.
These principles are based on a combination of desistance and recovery theory as well as Revolving Doors’ research and development work on the ground.
