Healing Our Imprisoned Minds

A People’s Guide to Hope and Freedom

Healing…CoverBitterness, frustration, self-anger, and the realities of prison life leave many prisoners and their families feeling hopeless. For those who have served lengthy terms and others who are facing years of incarceration, the feelings of despair can be overwhelming and never-ending. Healing Our Imprisoned Minds shows prisoners and others how to find peace of mind and meaning in their daily lives. In 29 beautifully written but practical essays and exercises, author and prisoner Patrick Middleton, Ph.D., shows readers how to dissolve their bitterness, change their perspectives, work on their flaws gradually, practice empathy, live each day with a purpose, and much more.

“Dr. Middleton’s self-help book is a must-read for those seeking practical common sense ways to improve their mind, body and outlook on life. His advice is all the more remarkable for its clarity, yet it is never heavy or boring. It simply is a pleasure to read the advice of this remarkable man.”- Ernie Preate, former PA Attorney General
