Dads Inside and Out
DVD2004 13 Minutes
Animated video showing the difficulties facing fathers in prison and their children.
Many prisoners have low self-esteem and lack confidence in themselves as parents. This animated programme stresses that a father can still make a big difference while he is inside and any effort he makes is worthwhile. Prisoners and their families have many problems to deal with such as what to tell the children, and how to keep in touch. The film shows how various fathers handle visits, negotiate with partners at home, learn communications skills and adjust to release. In a positive and often humorous way it points out some things that might help. A good discussion starter for anyone involved with prisons.
