Finding Fulfillment After Prison w/ Steve Scharboneau Jr.

Finding Fulfillment After Prison w/ Steve Scharboneau Jr.

October 14, 2020

Steve Scharboneau shares his inspiring tale of how he found fulfilment in his life by following his dreams, despite everyone telling him it wasn't possible.

Steve was incarcerated just days after his eighteenth birthday. Following the pain of the 2008 economic recession, with absolutely no educational background, he decided he wanted to become an attorney. Just last week, the Arizona Supreme Court gave him the stamp of approval to get started practicing law. From getting his G.E.D. in prison to becoming a lawyer, his journey has had many challenges. These challenges led to his work as an advocate for reforms to Arizona’s criminal justice system, including a bill he spearheaded (that became law last year in AZ) that prevents predatory companies from making money off of people's mugshots.

Psychological Effects of Incarceration

Psychological Effects of Incarceration

October 7, 2020

The adaptation to imprisonment is almost always difficult and, at times, creates habits of thinking and acting that can be dysfunctional in periods of post-prison adjustment (Haney).

Whether you're welcoming home a loved one from prison, or you just got out yourself, understanding the psychological effects of incarceration is the first step to overcoming the damaging effects. It's the first step to building the life of your dream.

Dealing with Trauma & Shame w/ Wanda Nordlie

Dealing with Trauma & Shame w/ Wanda Nordlie

September 16, 2020

In 2017, Ms. Nordlie wrote a memoir titled “Power to Heal My Whole Self,” which was listed as an Amazon Best Seller. It fearlessly examines the trauma she experienced traversing the foster care system and how she took healing into her own hands to become a stronger, healthier person. Her work centers around helping others find healing in their lives. That's why she created the workbook, “Provoking Courage, Finding Strength in Vulnerability,” as well as an online course. She helps guide those who have struggled, toward deeper understanding and healing, and leads individuals through the same systematic approach she used in her life. She’s done work with drug and alcohol treatment as well as bringing these insights to those who have been incarcerated.
