The Secret Life of Prisons podcast

Dec 17, 2020

How should we look after young people inside?

Phil and Paula hear from Courtney, who went to prison when she was a teenager. She reveals the emotional trauma of being locked up and reflects on the role prison played in rebuilding her life.

Earlier this year Courtney featured in the first episode of our sister podcast, Future Prison, where she shared her experiences with Dr Hegla Swindenbank, Executive Director for Youth Custody Services at the Ministry of Justice, and Dr Giles McCathie, Lead Psychologist for Youth Custody Services.

You can listen to all seven episodes of Future Prison here, including a brand new episode following up those conversations six months on.

Presenters: Phil Maguire, Paula Harriott and Hilary Ineomo-Marcus
Courtney, Dr Helga Swindenbank and Dr Giles McCathie

This episode contains references to self harm and suicide.
