Workbook: Processing Corrections Work
This unique workbook, entitled “Processing Corrections Work: A Workbook to Combat Corrections Fatigue and Increase Corrections Fulfillment,” by Caterina Spinaris and Gregory Morton, was first published by Desert Waters in 2011, and revised in 2012 and again in 2013. This 154-page, hard-copy product is specifically designed for corrections professionals, and is based on the course “From Corrections Fatigue to Fulfillment™” (CF2F). After reviewing strategic course content, the text guides staff through the processing of both the negative and positive aspects of corrections work on a daily basis. The workbook also helps them come up with positive, wellness-boosting strategies both professionally and personally. Multiple-choice and other types of questions are repeated for each workday/shift, for a total of 14 days. Staff can write in their responses over 14 consecutive days or less frequently as they choose. Aesthetically pleasing and clearly laid out, the workbook reinforces key principles of the CF2F material through the pinpointing of successes and concerns, and through the selection of solutions and wellness-promoting behaviors. As such it can easily serve as a follow-up tool for staff to use after completing CF2F coursework in order to reinforce wellness-promoting habits and solidify gains in positive behaviors in both their personal and professional lives. And since the workbook is a stand-alone product, it can also benefit corrections staff who have not yet taken the CF2F course. Additionally, sharing this workbook with family members and close friends can improve dialogue and two-way supportive behaviors in corrections staff’s significant relationships. The workbook is expected to be released as an e-book in 2017.
