I would like to extend my sincere thanks to Sergeant Jack Cottrell, Coordinator of the Friends For Folks Program and inmate participants, James, Stephen, and Darryl for sharing their experiences. My appreciation to Dr. Leo K. Bustad, Dr. Earl O. Strimple, and Phil Arkow for the sharing their knowledge and expertise of the subject area. Finally, I would like to thank Hilda Vanneste and Lisa Watson for providing direction to this project.
