What does a man have to do to put his life back together? Rehabilitation is difficult, but with the right tools, it can be done.
Norfolk, VA (PRWEB) August 08, 2013
Of the 7 million Americans incarcerated, on probation or parole, more than 4 in 10 can be expected to return to prison within three years, according to a 2011 study by the Pew Charitable Trusts’ Center on the States.
After finding himself jailed at a young age, Dr. Earle Williams found a way to turn his life around despite a series of mistakes and a tendency toward bad decisions. Now an experienced psychologist, Williams specializes in helping those in situations similar to his own.
In his new memoir, Roxbury Redemption, he candidly shares his life story, interspersed with lessons on the criminal mind, mistakes and decisions that lead to criminal activity. He also addresses our nation’s high recidivism rate and what can be done to help. Shedding light on his criminal past and the challenges he faced as a black man in America, he explains the hardships ex-felons must endure during their transition back into mainstream society.
"What does a man have to do to put his life back together?" asks Williams. "Rehabilitation is difficult but with the right tools, it can be done."
Dr. Williams examines the psychological factors that impact how a person develops, matures, and fails or succeeds, as told from his perspective as an ex-felon and psychologist.
"It is possible for an ex-felon to become a contributing citizen and improve his life, his family’s life and the country’s development,” says Williams. “Roxbury Redemption provides a plan for those who need a little extra assistance in reaching that point of rehabilitation."
