HAYS STATE PRISON - Anger Management - June 20, 2012

We just completed our 3rd class at Hays State Prison for Anger Management. Out of 18 who were enrolled in the class, we had 12 to graduate today. That is the largest class we have had yet! This group of inmates were attentive and participated in the discussions. This was also the most challenging class we have had because they wouldn't accept just the curriculum ... they wanted things that actually related to prison life. This brought about some great discussions which sometimes made it a little difficult to stay on course, but it seemed to be what was needed for the majority of the inmates. Some great ideas came out of this class that I believe will help future classes. Thank you, Chaplain Darryl J. Ellis and Deputy Warden Dean for all you do to make this possible!
