Transforming Inmates into Peacemakers, with Guest Doug Noll: Part 1

“From Serving Life to a Life of Service.” This is the motto of the Prison of Peace program created by Doug Noll and Laurel Kaufer, two lawyers with big hearts from California. Through Prison of Peace, incarcerated individuals are led through intensive workshops as they progress through the various program levels from Peacemaker to Certified Trainer, mastering the art of communication and conflict resolution, enabling them to create safer, more peaceful lives for themselves and others, in prison and beyond.

In today’s episode, the first of a two-parter, Bill and Megan are joined by Doug Noll who will talk about the transformative Prison of Peace program. They discuss:

  • what the program is and how it works
  • how it started
  • what led inmates to being incarcerated (think trauma background)
  • program success
  • whether it can work for everyone

Listen in as Doug talks about “Listening people into existence” in this first episode of two.
