My expertise centres around the use of words and music in a unique way that improves the mental health of those suffering loneliness and the results of that situation. Typically residents of prisons may be feeling emotionally low, and by engaging with them I enable a feeling of hope that things will improve. In turn this reduces anxiety and encourages trust and respect between residents and officers. Overall this tends to improve conformity on the inside, and subsequently results in better outcomes for all concerned.
In the general population loneliness is also a big problem and my experience of overcoming this feeling by talking, laughing, storytelling, combined with poetry writing and reading is a major benefit.
