I have just completed reading your book and honestly, I cannot stop the tears from falling. My husband purchased the book for me to read and I cannot thank him enough. It is very confronting to read, but also makes those of us that believe we wear a suit of armour and are untouchable to emotion, realise that we are actually very vulnerable. I am guilty of being one of those officers that pretend nothing can get through my hard exterior and everything just rolls off me with no effect. Your book has made me realize and acknowledge that that could not be further from the truth and it feels good to be human! Too often, by a myriad of professions and the general public, we are judged harshly and demeaned as insignificant. My hope is that not only do many correctional officers pick up this book and read it but so do the general public. We are in dire need over here in South Australia of experiencing the course ‘From Correction Fatigue to Fulfilment’ look forward to meeting you in the future.
