Inmates, not actors, discuss their new understanding of how distorted thinking keeps them stuck in addictive and criminal behaviors. In a group setting as participants in a cognitive-behavioral treatment program, the inmates reflect on and challenge each other about their core beliefs, attitudes, and assumptions about themselves and the world around them. Among their discoveries about the way they think: *seeing yourself as a victim allows you to victimize others *distorted thinking leads to manipulative and aggressive behaviors *feelings of entitlement and criminal pride play into distorted thinking *in criminal thinking, self is first and everybody else is second. Taped in correctional facilities, the video series allows real inmates to tell the real story about recovering from a life of addiction and crime. The result is a powerful, direct, and liberating message about finding a life of recovery and freedom.
