The inmates and their family members have to deal with numerous difficulties and rejection from the institutions and the society in general during the enforcement of sentences and even after. These people and their children can only move on if they are given opportunities for quality changes in their life and society does not give up on them. 15 female prisoners and their family members take part in story telling therapy, family development and several other interconnected services. The constant support and development services provided for these women and children and the opportunities to meet each other in events rich in emotions lead to the improvement of their self-assessment, their family relations and their ability to take responsibilities. Thanks to the methods of the project, the inmates and their children will have more success, which is essential for their proper self-assessment, relationships and plans for their life after prison. The goal of the initiative is to disseminate the method in several correctional institutes in Hungary and to communicate the project’s main goals and results to the mainstream society with numerous communication tools, such as a documentary.
