Video: Childhood Trauma Behind Bars

We would like to share this short film about the childhood trauma of men in prison. It is incredibly emotional, powerful, and moving.

Here is a quote from Fritzi Horstman, Founder / Executive Director at Compassion Prison Project, and featured in the film:

“Unaddressed childhood trauma changes how we respond to the world and when triggered, we make choices that sometimes have devastating consequences including domestic violence, addiction, murder and prison.

I, too, would have been incarcerated had I not had the privilege and support system I lucked into.

Let’s shift the paradigm of how we incarcerate, isolate and dehumanize the most traumatized members of our society.”
