Hello everyone, I am Leonna Abraham Brandao, Host for Blog Talk Radio/ Shedding Light. Our Guest, Miriam Jacobs a psychosocial therapist and BA philosopher, is back with us to discuss her extensive research into the penal systems, her work   in the Dutch prison system with restorative justice, and from that experience, how she developed a vision on the approach of incarceration, called deeper justice. Deeper Justice means literally doing justice to oneself on a deeper level. This is further interpreted as time in prison used for gaining self-insight and insight into what led to the crime. So, it's not about why one offended. But the question as to what actually lead to that moment he/she committed the crime. Ms. Jacob concluded, there is no judgement, but a search behind judgement for the person behind the incarcerated man or woman. Let's welcome Miriam Jacobs.
