This weekly planning journal, newly revised, assists ex-offenders in dealing with key transition issues during their first critical 99 days in the free world.
Addressing the hopes and fears of ex-offenders, this upbeat resource focuses on the nuts-and-bolts of implementation. It requires users to:
• specify three major objectives each week
• identify specific supporting daily activities
• anticipate related outcomes
• evaluate their progress at the end of each week
• make key adjustments for the next week
Viewing re-entry as a challenging, full-time job, the book encourages users to keep a weekly journal where they write down exactly what they plan to do each day and then evaluate their progress on a scale of 1 to 10 in accomplishing their goals for the week. They, in turn, summarize what they need to do to better accomplish their goals.
The journal also includes important sections on:
• key contacts
• financial planning
• personal information
• re-entry resources
This book provides an important structure for keeping ex-offenders focused on those things they need to do on a daily basis in order to become successful of the outside. It serves as a critical motivator for developing a new pattern of behavior in the free world. Package of 10. © 2015. 64 pp. 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" Softcover.
