A “ground breaking” initiative from the USA, helping people cope with trauma based on past experiences, is being delivered in Scottish prisons.

The Compassion Prison Project, which has worked with prisoners in major correctional facilities in America, is being offered at Barlinnie and other jails.

The programme focuses on the long-term impact of adverse childhood experiences (ACEs).

Scottish group Sisco, which develops and delivers recovery programmes in prisons, has brought the team from the USA to Scotland.

The work includes the compassion trauma circle, where people are encouraged and helped to open up about their experiences.
