Introduction
Using a method to re-channel aggression in inmates throughout the Belgium prison system, Marjan Gryson is creating opportunities for inmates to set positive goals, chart a course for a more constructive life outside of prison and reintegration into society as full citizens. Focusing on transforming destructive and debilitating anger into positive activities for groups outside the prison walls and often confronted to aggression, she educates a wider public to empathy and creates the conditions for more successful reintegration in society and reduction in recidivism and violence.
